Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Gloria the Summer Fun Bus
Gloria is a special Playbus.
She is painted with bright colours that makes her stand out. Now she is ready for a summer of fun, but will Max enjoy the adventure.
Why don’t you join in the fun, too?
This is another fun read from this lovely children’s author. This book features Gloria, a play bus that is decorated and set up to help provide fun activities for children during the summer. One of the visitors to the bus is Max, but he’s not really wanting to go on the bus and it takes time for him to discover just how fun it is!
The book has lovely, colourful and attractive illustrations with lots to discover. The story itself is a lovely read but could also easily be used by parents and teachers to promote discussions regarding how and why Max behaves as he does, how they think he is feeling and what they think about him during the story. This is a great addition to the Playbus adventure series and I can’t wait to read more from this author in future.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after enjoying reading it!
Author Bio –
Sue Wickstead is a teacher and an author and writes children’s picture books with a bus theme. She has also written a photographic history book about the real bus, which is where her story writing began.
Sue once worked with a playbus charity based in Crawley. This led her to write the photographic history book about the project. The ‘Bewbush Playbus’ book was published in 2012.
Sue then began to write a fictional tale about the bus. ‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus’, his number plate JJK261 gave him his name and has now been followed by more picture books which all indeed have a bus connection as well as links to her teaching journey.
Gloria is the most recent book and is based on the summer play-schemes which operated during the school holidays providing a safe place for children to meet and to play.
