Bunk Bed Bus Reviews
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hungry Horse and NetGalley.)This was a cute children’s story about an energetic granny, and her brilliant idea to make a bunk-bed bus out of some old beds and other bits and bobs, just in time to beat the snooty neighbour at the art exhibition!This was a lovely story, and the pictures were lovely too. My 4-year-old enjoyed this story, even though you wouldn’t catch either of his granny’s welding beds together!7.5 out of 10
This copy kindly provided by NetGalley on behalf of the publisher. my son loved this one! I can just see now that he’ll be wanting his own bunk bed bus. A great story about learning new skills, doing what you love, and not letting anyone tell you otherwise.
This book is about Sam and Janet’s granny who is very active and energetic. She loves to go jogging, building things and fixing cars. When her nosey neighbour informs her she is not very artistic granny decides to build a bunk bed bus for the art exhibition in the town. When her bus is refused entry to the hall Sam and Janet step in to ensure their granny's hard work does not go unnoticed. The children are delighted when she wins and it becomes a feature in their town.The pictures are very detailed throughout the book ensuring the readers imagination is tapped into. There are illustrations of items that they may not also be used to seeing on a daily basis such as the bunk bed bus so this will also get them to think outside of the norm and extensive use for their imaginations to run wild with all sorts of ideas and inventions. Also the content of the storyline will allow for detailed conversations in the classroom of inventions and ways in which children could come up with their own for an art exhibition. This story could be used cross curricular- in art class children could draw out their ideas and have fun with the concept of new creations. It also gives an opportunity to discuss their own experiences with their granny’s and family relationships.I liked the illustrations and engaging storyline of what their granny would get up to next. I feel this is aimed for children in Early Years stage/ KS1 of 4-6 years.
Janet and Sam have one energetic granny. No one can keep up with her. She loves life and she engages in it. She jogs, builds shelves, fixes cars and now her new passion is to create an iron sculpture to enter in the art exhibition. Her uppity next door neighbour accuses her of not being artistic because she is too old and well.... all fired up, granny set out to prove her wrong. How dare that old busy-body say that to her? Who does she think she is? How rude. Granny, right then, sets her mind and her heart to be the winner. She works diligently to produce the winning entry but alas her sculpture is too big to fit through the doors of the exhibition hall. Granny feels down and defeated because how can she win if she can't get her creation inside to the judges? But not to worry. Her delightful grandchildren take up her cause and with the help of their loyalty and spunk they alert the judges to their granny's masterpiece parked just outside the hall. When the judges feast their eyes on her submission and see the local children's interest in it, they deem it fit for first prize. Hurray for granny!The illustrations are detailed, colourful and drive the text beautifully. I highly recommend this book.
An absolutely delightful story of Janet and Sam and their wonderful Granny who never believes she is too old to do what she wants, and never stops trying new things. She jogs in a tracksuit she knitted herself, she learns to work with wood and make shelves, and she's never afraid a new challenge.When grumbly next-door neighbor Mrs. Grimbly-White mentions an art exhibition and dismisses Granny as "too old" to be artistic, Granny puts her mind to it and makes an amazing Bunk-Bed Bus, much to the delight of all the children in town.I strongly recommend this for preschool and early elementary children, and also to their parents, teachers and librarians to read aloud or along with.
I recieved this as an E-arc from Netgalley in return of an honest review; i Really enjoyed this funny little book! The story itself was great and the message in it was just marvelous! "You are never too old to do anything". This book broke not only gender stereotypes but also stereotypes for ages, and what is consider 'right' for you to do at any age. A very well written book for the ages 7-10, but even me as a 18-year-old could enjoy and appreciate this little fellow. Marvelous. I cannot wiat to see it hit the streets.
We received this book to give an honest review.K and I laughed with this book. A Grandma who can make a bunk-bed bus out of junk? Now that is a cool grandma. Sam and Janet's grandma is full of energy and can fix anything and make anything. When an art exhibition goes on she decides to enter into it, being as her snooty neighbor doesn't believe she can do anything because she is "old". Will she win or will other pieces of art win? The pictures are very illustrated the story line is good. This is a story I see me and K reading a couple of more times as it was very entertaining.
The Bunk-Bed BusFrank Rogers9781625178091This is a sweet story that puts to rest the adage, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Janet and Sam’s Granny is told by a neighbor that she isn’t artistic because she works with junk and is too old to learn. Granny sets out to prove her wrong and enters The Grand Art Exhibition at the Town Hall. Granny builds a bunk-bed bus and Janet and Sam help her get it to town. When they get there, it is too large to fit inside. What will they do?
Granny says "You are never too old to learn something new." and she proved it in this silly story. I love the message and the illustrations were bright and cheerful.I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
