When Moose runs out of stories to tell his family, he attempts to borrow books from his neighbors— but nobody has any books! So Moose goes to the city and borrows books from the library, and soon his family's home is overfilled with neighbors who enjoy listening to him read stories. Moose's solution? Transform an old bus into a book bus and drive the countryside providing books for his neighbors!
Inga Moore's Moose's Book Bus is a quaint story about the love of stories, and anyone who has experienced the joy of getting books from a bookmobile/book bus will enjoy reading about Moose and his neighbors. It's a story that promotes storytelling, literacy, and neighborly goodwill, and Moore's illustrations deftly capture the tone and mood of her tale about tale-telling. After the final page, readers will be on the lookout for a book bus in their neighborhood!
