Review: I loved Billie she was adorable and is certainly a sweet bus driver, I loved the way she spoke so passionately about her career and the people she gets to help each day. She teaches children of the joy of driving a bus and the different types of adventures and people she gets to meet each day. I really enjoyed looking through and reading this one it was really sweet and it’s nice to see a book about a female bus driver. 

I really love that each one of these books has a fun printable of paper dolls as such where kids can cut them out and play as though they are playing out the book or creating their very own journey, this is such a good sweet addition. 

This series is so incredibly fun for the younger audience, they learn so much, get inspired by different careers, they can play with printouts and they are empowering. I highly recommend this series.
