The pictures are great with small details that change from page to page. This book is one that a toddler can start to "read" to you. Good to learn about what comes next as the vehicles come and go. "Is this the bus for us, Gus?"

While Gus and Tess wait for the school bus, a colourful array of other vehicles make their way past. Will their bus ever arrive?
