    I work in a kindergarten room... ages 3-5yrs. We first read "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus" by the same author and became hooked.These books are interactive, great fun and teach positive outcomes.

    "This picture book demands audience participation... Readers will identify with the pigeon themselves!" The Bookseller on Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!"
