Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus by Sue Wickstead. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
Daisy was a happy red bus who loved traveling the busy streets of London.
When newer and shinier buses came along, the older buses like Daisy began to disappear.
Would Daisy become one of the forgotten buses, or was something else planned for her?
Obviously I don’t read a ton of children’s stories because I don’t have a child currently. However, I do have a niece and nephew, so sometimes, I take a leap and join in to read a children’s novel to see if it would be something they would like. I think Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus is something I would have them read. It’s a cute story and it has lots of stuff in it that would encourage children to read!
There were points that I felt it gave a little bit too much information. Some things that I didn’t understand, so I would have a hard time answering questions the kids had when reading. But, it does encourage learning, so I think that is a plus and a minus for this book.
Overall, I think this was a fun story and I would definitely give it to my niece and nephew to read. Recommended for sure!
I am a teacher and an author and have currently written six children’s picture books with a bus theme.
For over 20 years, alongside my teaching career, I worked with a Children’s Charity, The Bewbush Playbus Association, which led me to write a photographic history book about it.
I soon found that many children had never been on a bus before, let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they wanted to know more. I decided to write a fictional tale about the bus, his number plate JJK261 gave him his name.
‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus,’ came out in print in 2014. It is the story behind the original bus and is his journey from a scrap-yard to being changed into a playbus for children to play in. From Fact to fiction the bus journey continued.
This story has now been followed by five more picture books.
I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share the story. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.
The story has been read in many schools in the south-East of England, where I teach as a cover teacher, it is always well received and certainly different.
