ILLUSTRATION STYLE
  • Large, clean illustrations and simplified details
  • Bright colors and geometric based illustrations
  • Focus on sparseness in both illustrations and text
  • Uses illustrative cohesion to connect each page and build the story
  • Illustration subjects are used as symbols more than characters
  • Early illustrations were sketch and paint
  • Current illustrations use computer software
what s new
WHAT’S NEW?
  • My Bus is a lively celebration of vehicles and transportation, occupations, pets, and basic math concepts. The busy bus driver in Byron Barton\'s preschool tour-de-force has a job to do. He drives his bus along his route, picks up the cat and dog passengers waiting at the bus stops, and delivers them to their destinations—which in this case include the airport, the harbor, and the train station. Along the way, children are introduced to the concepts of addition, subtraction, and sets. A surprise ending of sorts—what will happen to the very last passenger?—makes this a great read-aloud for story time and bedtime.
