Board book: Bus

Bus. Chris Demarest. 1996/2017. HMH. 16 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Bus rolls. Busy street. First stop, people meet. Trucks honk, taxis swerve. City park, road curves.

Premise/plot: A boy goes on a bus ride in the city. What does he see? What does he hear?

My thoughts: This book is simple. How simple is simple? Two words per page. You might think it's impossible for any story to emerge from just two words per page, yet, the simple text becomes a poem of sorts. I also like the bold colors of the illustrations. This one is definitely much better than the "Wheels on the Bus."
