Hi there, it has been awhile since you heard from me. Things are a tad busy at home with mum doing a gazillion of things and this school boy, busy with school work and other stuff.

One of the many things I would like to share with you are my favorite things, so today I am talking about one of my favorite books ~ Ang Barumbadong Bus.

Here’s a brief summary found at the back of the book:

Isang bus na kaskasero ang naghahari-harian sa kalsada.

Wala siyang pakialam sa kapakanan ng iba. 

Basahin sa kwentong ito ang sinapit 

ng barumbadong bus dahil sa kaniyang kayabangan.

This story is about a temperamental bus called Kas, who wants to drive fast in the street, passed the many other cars and vehicles, whom he bullied as he zoomed by. This bus only cares for himself and does not care whether he hurt the other vehicles as he passed them by. Even his passengers are afraid of him because he is known to race in the street and to speed on without waiting for the passengers to fully exit his bus.

One day, the bully bus met an accident and he can no longer race on the road. He ended up in the town car impound, alone and broken.

This book was written by Rene O. Villanueva and illustrated by Jo Ann Bereber-Ganda. It is recommended for kids 8 years and up. I love stories about cars and other vehicles so this one is my favorite, too. I enjoy reading this during nighttime before bed.

I will share another favorite book of mine after this post or as soon as mum’s done reading all about the awesome instruments found on How about you, what is your favorite bedtime book?
