I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus, the latest children’s book by the lovely Sue Wickstead. Thank you to Rachel Gilbey and the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review this lovely book.
About the book:
Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus
Daisy was a happy red bus who loved travelling the busy streets of London.
When newer and shinier buses came along, the older buses like Daisy began to disappear.
Would Daisy become one of the forgotten buses, or was something else planned for her?

About the author:
I am a teacher and an author and have currently written six children’s picture books with a bus theme.
For over 20 years, alongside my teaching career, I worked with a Children’s Charity, The Bewbush Playbus Association, which led me to write a photographic history book about it.
I soon found that many children had never been on a bus before, let alone a ‘Playbus’ and they wanted to know more. I decided to write a fictional tale about the bus, his number plate JJK261 gave him his name.
‘Jay-Jay the Supersonic Bus,’ came out in print in 2014. It is the story behind the original bus and is his journey from a scrap-yard to being changed into a playbus for children to play in. From Fact to
fiction the bus journey continued. This story has now been followed by five more picture books.
I also undertake events and author bookings and love to share the story. There are also a few more stories in the writing process, with links to real events and buses.
The story has been read in many schools in the south-East of England, where I teach as a cover teacher, it is always well received and certainly different.

Daisy Daydream the Nursery Rhyme Bus by Sue Wickstead is another fantastic read that young children will adore.
I read this book with my two young grandchildren aged four and five and they loved it! As with Sue’s previous books the illustrations are bright and colourful, with a story that will capture a young imagination and aid learning in a fun and entertaining manner.
Daisy was a happy red bus who loved travelling the streets of London, but when newer and shinier buses came along it seemed like Daisy would no longer be wanted. Has Daisy fulfilled her purpose? Or will she be given the chance to shine again?
I’m a huge fan of the Jay-Jay series of books and so are my grandchildren, so I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to get to know Daisy in this new adventure. The use of nursery rhymes make this book very readable and my grandchildren, especially my four year old, have enjoyed going back to this story again and again over the summer.
Sue Wickstead has written another warm and entertaining story that is the perfect companion to the Jay-Jay series of books.
I always feel like my grandchildren are in very capable hands with a story written by this author. The bright and colourful illustrations, coupled with the rhyming prose, are a combination made in heaven. The characters of Daisy and Jay-Jay are brought vividly to life and are incredibly appealing to young children.
A fabulous series of books that I would highly recommend.
