    1. Aram Kim Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Cat on the Bus book, this is one of the most wanted Aram Kim author readers around the world.

    2. LOVED this book. Was right there with the cat on its journey and through its expressions as it searched for a person to trust and a warm place to stay.

    3. An adorable little calico cat finds a safe, loving home in this almost entirely wordless book. I love the illustrations and how hopeful the cat remains in the face of indifference and rejection. In one of the illustrations we can see a store window decorated for Christmas, and this would be an excellent story to share with kids during a holiday story time.

    4. Holy balls, I don't remember the last time a picture book made me cry because of sweetness and cuteness, but this very nearly did. (Because I am not crying right now; I just have some dust in my eyes.) Very sweet, very few words, but so effectively told and illustrated . . . Endearing and wonderful, even with the feelings sneaking up on me!

    5. Aram Kim's Cat on the Bus is an almost wordless book that describes a cat's journey to finding a home through pictures. I really enjoyed this book because the artwork told a beautiful story with little text to support it. I felt such joy at the end of the book when the cat went home with that family. This book would be great for readers learning to read, ELL students, and more. For example an ELL student or new reader could tell us the events of the story and emotions being felt without the pres [...]

    6. I don't even like cats, and this book makes me want a cat. Truth: when my husband and I are old and empty-nesters and we travel more, I can see us rescuing a cat or two. For now I prefer to have dogs.But still. This book made me question my resolve for just a minute.

    7. this would probably work better one on one that in a crowd, but it's a beautiful book. So sweet, and the cat's little face gets me right in the feels.

    8. This was a book that had an interesting title along with a beautiful cover and so is quite attractive for that regard. And unlike other books that are geared towards children this is one book that is truly for a younger audience as there is really no actual story to read but just sounds that one can make or maybe even encourage the little ones they are showing the book to take over on. The book has a wonderful collection of illustrations that portrays what it is like for a cat on the street whet [...]

    9. Kim, Aram. Cat on the Bus, PICTURE BOOK. Holiday House, 2016. $16.95. A stray cat finds a perfect place to warm up one cold day, when it boards a bus after looking for places to take shelter. The cat befriends a man and they cuddle up while they ride. The cat finds its way home with the man to another new friend. A little girl. This book has few words and tells the story mainly in pictures. It is a cute premise and the pictures are attention-grabbing. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay [...]

    10. The book "Cat on the Bus" doesn't present many words to the readers. It is more of a picture book that gives clues to young children to try to figure out what is going on throughout the story. The cat is the main character, and the cat walks around a neighborhood while getting treated not so great by strangers who come across this cat. Then, the cat sees a bus go by and decides to sneak on it. At the end of the book, the cat curls up next to someone who becomes a really good friend. The story en [...]

    11. This nearly wordless picture book tells the story of an adorable homeless cat who finally finds a home. The beautiful illustrations let the reader see how sad the cat is, but all that changes when he sneaks on the bus. This is a perfect book for younger children. You can ask them to tell you the story by looking at the pictures. I highly recommend this one!

    12. This is mostly a nonverbal book, a picture book in its original form. A stray cat is cold and hungry when it gets on the bus and finds a forever home. The art is very pretty. I wouldn't recommend this for a bedtime story since there are next to no words but it's a great visual read for smaller kids who might want a cat of their own.

    13. Poor cat isn't allowed ANYWHERE, and it's snowing. Finally a nice lady on the bus lets him get inside where it's warm. Life looks up.It's not a particularly complex story, but soft and comforting.

    14. I like the illustrations in this book. The illustrations were exquisite. This book is easy to read for the children. Because there have not too much words in this book. The poor cat was homeless on the street. Finally, a kind person took it to go home. And the cat has a home and family!

    15. The nearly wordless tale of a city cat searching for a home. Simple and sweet, with very expressive illustrations. The limited text and powerful pictures make this a great choice for new readers and youngsters developing picture literacy; also includes many great examples of onomatopoeia.

    16. Sweet and simple story with very little works and non-complicated illustrations about a homeless cat that keeps getting shooed away, makes its way on a bus, and meets an old man who takes the cat home. Good for young kids (preschool and kindergarten) and very early readers.

    18. Such a sweet book with a happy ending. I love the idea of the reader telling the story to themselves as they go. A lot of fun to read with someone else.

    19. I am so glad the cat get to find a home that purrrrect for it. Now, it has a warm place to live, food to eat, and someone to pat it.
