Moose’s Book Bus
by Inga Moore
5 out of 5 stars
Every evening, Moose tells a story to his family. One night he can’t think of any new stories, so the next day he travels in to town and goes to the library to get a book to read aloud to the family. Moose’s storybook readings are so popular that the animal neighbors want to come listen to Moose reading out loud, but there are too many of them to fit in the house! Bear, Fox, Badger, Hare, Mole, and the Beavers, and the Wild Pigs all bring their children to hear the stories. Moose will have to think of a new solution so that everyone can enjoy reading storybooks.
I LOVED this book so much! It spoke to my soul in a deep way, since I love reading and I think reading together out loud is so important as a family. The way the Moose family came together and connected with all their neighbors was so beautiful! They really help each other out, and they support and celebrate each different family in the forest. What a positive and inspiring story!
The illustrations are so cute! Oh my goodness, all those little beaver and pig children running around, playing and tickling, and learning to read. So sweet! And the little bear and badger cubs are so adorable! I love the soft art style and soothing colors. The whole atmosphere of the forest and the community of animals is wonderful.
This book gave me such warm fuzzy feelings! Every time I saw some little animal in the background with a pile of books in their hands, I had a happy grin on my face. I just love to see reading celebrated and encouraged in this fun and clever book! Plus it’s interesting to see how Moose has the idea to start a mobile library! So smart and fun!
