Just a fun book! The simple style of art is clean. Willems displays a range of emotions with Pigeon. The text reads like a conversation between the pigeon and the reader and can be fun to read out loud. Children can learn the lesson of patience and acceptance. ( )

This is a good book for a read aloud, as well as a book to encourage students to write in different ways. This would be good to use when talking about HOW an author writes. ( )

It’s a fun interactive book that talks to the reader. It’s kinda puts a the reader in a spot of responsibility. I would have this in my classroom. ( )

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems (2003)
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
Mo Willems is a great author and is very humorous throughout the book. This book was about the bus driver saying do not let the pigeon drive the bus to the reader. The pigeon throughout the book is trying to convince you to let him drive the bus. ( )

Book description
The pigeon dreams of driving a bus, but the bus driver enlists the reader to keep the pigeon out of the driver’s seat. The book progresses as the pigeon wheedles and readers get to say, “No!” – putting the children in the driver’s seat themselves. Other books include Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! (a bedtime book that gets loud in the middle and gradually quieter/darker) and The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog (not as good, IMO, dealing with sharing when a duckling wants the pigeon’s coveted hot dog). These books address issues of power and necessity at a preschool level, as well as being hilariously written and engagingly illustrated in a comic-book style.
