Don't Let the Pigeon Drive The Bus

Event Details


Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!
by Mo Willems
Hyperion (2003)

This is a very special Kids in the Cliff instalment: Katherine Bourne will join us for the last time (in a while) to read to the kids as she’ll be leaving Dallas at the end of the month–Kate you’ll be missed. She’s chosen Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems to say “hasta la vista.”

Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! is Mo Willems first children’s book and was awarded with the Caldecott Honor. In a very minimalistic style Willems captures the prescholar’s temper tantrum perfectly as a pigeon insists in driving the bus while the driver takes a break. As he pleads, wheedles, and begs his way through the book, children will love being able to answer back and decide his fate.

It’ll be a 25 minute read followed by a short discussion with the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.

The book is geared for ages 3-7, but all ages are welcome.

On Saturday morning bring your kids and infuse them with a love for reading.
