I am constantly surprised at the children’s curiosity and interest in the Playbus and how much pleasure it still brings even though it is now only in book form. The children are as fascinated as ever about the Fact as well as the Fiction.
During a visit to a school in November 2014, the book having just come out in print, the children had the opportunity to interview the author asking questions. They were then able to write their report adding headlines and images. At the same time the local Newspaper had also printed their article about the book and the bus which the class read could compare to their ideas.
They were able to also see many bus images on the internet and from these they drew their own photographic image of the bus, the book or the author. These images were then added into their article with a caption.
