I just can’t get enough of my books this week! I think you will agree that today’s “The Teacher is Talking” meshes well with yesterday’s post about speech disorders and bullies.
The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon came to us by way of a birthday gift for my 6-year old. She’s a full-day kindergarten student who hops on the big yellow every day, so a book about school buses made perfect sense. But this is not just any school bus–it’s Miss Joy’s Energy Bus!

I love how this book teaches the young character that he is in charge of his own positivity–his own good thinking, and his own outcome. It’s about coming to school ready for the day and being your best self. When some of the older kids at school bother him, he just uses his special energy bus powers to put ’em in their place. Of course, there are a few bumps along the road, but what one learns from the energy bus is something we can all take with us on our journey.
From the website:
“The Energy Bus for Kids shows children how to overcome negativity, bullies and everyday challenges to be their best and share their positive energy with others.
When you get kids on The Energy Bus, you’ll infuse their lives with vision, hope, love and positivity.”
