It’s the first day of school! But is Busy Bus ready? Find out in this darling picture book that showcases the excitement and worries little ones experience as they prepare for their first day. 

Today is the very first day of school! Busy Bus is excited, but he also has some first-day jitters. Will the children like him? Will he be homesick? What if he gets lost?! Luckily, bus driver Ben knows just what to do to make sure that the school year gets off to a great start.

Messer’s digitally colored, lino-print-and-ink images showcase a sunny fleet of anthropomorphized yellow vehicles with headlight eyes and windshield-wiper eyebrows, which expressively raise as Busy Bus expresses his trepidation, and then form a rainbow arch when Busy Bus happily settles into his first day on the job. Ages 3–8.
