Bookish Advent Calendar - Day Fourteen!
I never understood this book until I read it aloud to a class of 2-4 year olds. After that first read-through it made perfect, beautiful, wonderful sense. I adore the concept of an interactive picture book.
The bus driver has to go off for a moment, but he doesn't want to let the pigeon drive the bus. So no matter how much the pigeon begs or moans, the children mustn't say yes. The pigeon's reactions are hilarious, and it's so much fun to read it to an appreciative audience.
There's an entire series of these books now. Can't recommend them enough for the under 5s.
