Daisy Daydream - Sue Wickstead #BlogTour #Review

Daisy Daydream

Today I am pleased to be able to participate in the blog tour for Daisy Daydream by Sue Wickstead.  My thanks go to Rachel’s Random Resources. 

About the Book

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?

My Review

A delightful book about an old red routemaster bus who went from travelling the streets of London carrying passengers to becoming one of the buses no longer needed due to newer more efficient buses coming in.

Is Daisy going to be a bus that time forgets or will she get a new lease of life?

An excellent book full of lovely colourful pictures that explain the story as you turn each page. A lovely story of what happens to Daisy and one that children of preschool to approximately age 5 will enjoy.

I also have a review from my daughter who also read this book. 

Amelia’s Review

This was an amazing book to read and is aimed at preschool to Year 2 children.  This is a good way to teach children a lesson about looking after things and maybe learning them to recycle things that rarely get used that much. 

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.
