Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus

I discovered Mo Willems shortly after my daughter, Molly, was born just over 5 years ago. We were generously gifted a stack of "children's classics" from a family friend and included inside was Mo Willems' Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus.  It's a favorite of many children at The Storybook Shoppe and all over the country. The Storybook Shoppe even carries a stuffed animal pigeon -- he's that popular! 

Like my daughter, Molly, and son, Connor, all children seem to gravitate towards the simplicity and quick wit of this picture book. And who can resist a sassy pigeon yelling: "LET ME DRIVE THE BUS!"?  Molly and Connor both love screaming it.

I found a great, interactive reading of this book online. Nothing beats sitting and reading an actual book with your children but this will give you a good idea of the overall flavor and tone of this book!

The pigeon is really determined to drive that bus, isn't he? It's a great conversation opener as the pigeon goes through a wide range of emotions and techniques to get his way in this book.  Pleading, begging, bribing, asking nicely, yelling, and more to get his way -- how he ultimately gets his way will surprise readers!

Mo Willems is an incredibly accomplished children's writer and his stories are loved and laughed at by children. His website here has a really fun and interactive computer game for children.
