Blue Bus, Red Balloon: Brian Biggs
Keeping with the Everything Goes Series, I recommend Brian Biggs Blue Bus, Red Balloon, a Book of Colors. Brian tells a story of a lost balloon found again in this small board book, of course featuring means of transportation.
When the little girl loses her balloon out the yellow taxi, the reader tracks the balloon's journey past a green van, a blue bus, a black sports car, and even a purple sailboat. With the rainbow train pulling into town for the circus, the girl hops a hot air balloon and retrieves her own balloon herself.
I love that Briggs told a story while demonstrating color and modes of transportation. Well done!
