photo-78I recently had the pleasure of reading The Energy Bus for Kids: A Story about Staying Positive and Overcoming Challenges by Jon Gordon. It is a delightful book about a little boy, George, who tends to have a negative attitude as he goes through his school day. But his bus driver, Joy, begins to teach him lessons that turn his day around.

The book is beautifully and brightly illustrated by Korey Scott. Both the narrative and illustrations will draw the attention of any child.


I thought the book would solely deal with having a positive attitude. I found that within the covers of this one book were several messages to children:

  • how to overcome negativity
  • how to deal with the issue of bullying
  • how to look at challenges
  • how to share a positive attitude with those around you

The book can help deposit love, hope and vision into any young life. A delightful read with a great message.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a result of entering a giveaway. I was not required nor asked to give a review.
