Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

Mo Willems

Willems, M., & Hyperion Books for Children. (2003). Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus.

Pigeon really wants to drive the bus! He is willing to do just about anything to drive the bus, until it drives away.


This book is great for new readers! The words are very simple and repetitive. In addition, the pages are simple with many pictures keeping them engaged.

When working in the first grade classroom the students loved the Mo Willem’s books. They thought they were so silly and were always really excited to read them! They are so great for beginning readers to get comfortable with their reading and gain confidence!

Does Pigeon take no for an answer when he wants to drive the bus?
