"Young fans of Ezra Jack Keats’ The Snowy Day (1962) will find this an enjoyable companion book, and this title will likely see heavy rotation in libraries during the colder months of the year.... Simple, snowy fun with a vocabulary-building boost."

— Kirkus Reviews

"School day turns to snow day in a picture book that’s both appellative abecedarian and ebullient celebration of frosty weather.... Watkins’s spare mixed-media illustrations ... work hand-in-hand with Dale’s energetic poetry as the book builds to the expected but no less jubilant explanation for the missing bus."

— Publishers Weekly

"An adorable cast of characters, depicted with vibrancy and individuality, provides the heartbeat and through line of this action-filled A-to-Z adventure... Fans of THE SNOWY DAY and A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS will love BUS STOP."
