Remember when your lunchbox was the coolest thing on the first day of school? Arthur and Violet, chimp siblings, are waiting for the schoolbus and enjoying their lunch boxes. Along comes Norman with a lunchbox that looks exactly the same as Arthur's. But happily there are different lunches inside them even though they both are bringing their baseball cards to school. The bus arrives and the kids climb aboard. Norman suddenly notices that he has left his lunchbox and now his dog, Bubbles, is chasing the bus to deliver the goods. The kids are cheering and standing and completely ignoring all the safety rules. Everyone needs to know the bus safety rules and everyone knows the satisfaction of finally getting to eat the goodies in your own lunchbox. Lillian Hoban's insightful adventure gets its point across at the same time it celebrates the fun of the first day of school. 48 pages Ages 4-8 An I Can Read Book
