Good Morning, Mr. Charlie
by Mary Germaine Desmond

It’s the first day of school! Pick up your backpack, grab your lunch, and run outside. Before the excitement of class, what do you find? It’s the bus, and the smiling bus driver!

It’s Ayesha’s first day of school, and she’s nervous: because she lives far away from her school, she has to take the bus! When those big yellow doors swing open, she’s greeted with a smile. Mr. Charlie is here!

Go on an adventure with Ayesha, and learn what it’s like to take the bus, and how important a bus driver can be. Mr. Charlie is the first person Ayesha sees in the morning, and the last one she waves goodbye to on her way home. He teaches her important lessons about following the rules and makes sure she’s always safe.

There are so many unsung heroes in the education system. Take a ride with Mr. Charlie, and see why taking a bus is fun, a great place to learn, and a new adventure every day!
