Review by Ian Stewart.
Ted drove children to birthday parties in his party bus. One day, he got a special treat as he drove the party bus to his own house for special surprise party. It was his 65th birthday.
Ted stopped at Jack’s house.
“Whose party is it?”asked Ted.
“Wait and see,”said Jack’s mom.
This fun and delightfully illustrated little book is suitable for beginning readers in kindergarten and grade 1. It is written approximately at a D reading level.
Ted’s Party Bus contains a Puzzle Time section which has a sequencing activity and a descriptive vocabulary exercise. There is also a “Notes for adults” section that will help parents enhance their child's reading enjoyment and deepen the learning experience.
Ian Stewart is a Reading Recovery and kindergarten teacher at David Livingstone School in Winnipeg, MB.
