It's back to school time, so the kiddos are probably getting use to the idea of riding the bus, but did you know that a bus can tell jokes, spin nursery rhymes, and bring a smile to your face? Ha! I thought not...but, I know one that's swinging by today to do JUST THAT with the latest release in the growing series from author Sue Wickstead, currently touring with Rachel's Random Resources. So, are you ready? Get set. READ ON!
Daisy Daydream Bus Rhymes and Jokes
About the book...
Some well known nursery rhymes, rewritten, with a bus twist.
Come and sing along and share a bus joke too.
A special collection for Daisy Daydream.
(Who has her own story book)
Daisy Daydream is back (because she has her own book, no less!) and bringing an EXTRA dose of fun with one liner jokes, short tales, and nursery rhymes with a BUS-ish twist that'll bring the laughs, giggles and gaffaws. For example...
What did the bus driver say to the frog?
Why didn't anyone take the school bus to school?
IT WOULDN'T FIT THROUGH THE DOOR!
...and other zingers!
As for the rhymes, I think JACK AND JILL had way more fun than they previously did with that hill...poor LITTLE MISS MUFFET doesn't fair any better without her tuffet...and the OLD WOMAN may still have her hands full of children, but thanks to crafty ideas and a nifty old bus, she's got more to occupy them too!
So climb on board and take a ride,
You never know where it might lead;
Daisy Daydream is at the helm,
Heading for those good times we ALL simply need!
A pleasant surprise for readers of all ages with fun rhymes and creative illustrations throughout. Don't miss this new addition to the series!
About the author...
Sue Wickstead lives in West Sussex, UK and writes children’s picture story books.
Her stories relate to both her experiences as a teacher as well as her play-work adventures with a bus.
The Playbus was a real double-decker bus full of toys, arts and crafts, as well as a lot of fun to play on. Sue wrote a photographic social history book about the project which led to her story telling and her writing. All of Sue’s books do have a bus included in them somewhere. Daisy Daydream was the bus that Sue painted and the start of her Playbus and writing journey.
When not writing Sue builds models with Lego (especially for her grandson), she loves spending quality time with her young grandson and enjoys creating models to share with him on his visits.
Her grandson features in the book ‘Barty Barton; the bear that was loved too much’ which was published in 2020. He also helps his Nanny Sue to sing along with a few of the rhymes sue has written.
Many of Sue’s books have been entered and shortlisted in ‘The Wishing Shelf Book Awards’, the book ‘A Spooky Tale’ was a silver medal winner in 2019. The story was written with her class in school.
