I was recently introduced to a new children’s book called Funky Yellow Bus by Robin Rosenberg and illustrated by Bernie Freytag. This book was written for children ages 3-7 and helps children with a  fear of new situations, including riding the school bus for the first time. 


Book Description Via Amazon:

Change isn’t easy, and sometimes it happens quickly – like when we ride the bus to school for the first time. In the Funky Yellow Bus, young Brookie Cookie might be wary of climbing aboard the first couple days – and her trip to school doesn’t come without a couple bumps in the road – but she and her companions transform the experience into a journey of music, fun and, most importantly, friendship. So come along for a ride on the Funky Yellow Bus! It’s full of cool characters, rockin’ good times, and the chance to overcome those nervous moments we all experience.

Funky Yellow Bus stars Brookie Cookie. Brookie Cookie is starting Kindergarten and finds herself nervous about riding the Funky Yellow Bus. My daughter Amberly said she has felt like this before when she had to ride the bus during preschool. This was the first time that she had ever ridden a bus before so I can understand why she would be nervous. 

Since Amberly is just learning how to read, Haley ended up reading this book to her. They really enjoyed the fact that this book was written in a rhyming pattern. The overall story was a hit with my girls. Haley’s favorite part was when Brookie got over her nerves when she realized that she has friends on the bus.

  1. My granddaughter starts kindergarten in the Fall. She will have her older brother to ride the bus with her. I can see how it can be scary for a young child though.
