Touch-a-Bus Storytime Teaches Kids to Ride the Bus

June 16, 2017
Spokane, WA Spokane County Library District announces Touch-a-Bus Storytime in partnership with Spokane Transit Authority. A continuation of the Library District’s Touch-a-Truck Storytimes where kids could explore fire trucks and recycling trucks, this event allows young readers and parents to explore a bus at storytime.

A bus driver will read Mo Willems’s humorous Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and other entertaining stories followed by some fingerplays and movement activities. Then kids get to head outside to touch and climb into a Spokane Transit Authority bus! This engaging family storytime is for all ages.

Spokane County Library District storytimes introduce important literacy, STEM, and social skills that are important to early childhood literacy. Touch-a-Bus Storytime will delight children with fun activities while learning about what it’s like to ride a real bus.  

This event is part of Spokane Transit’s commitment to help individuals of all ages in the community learn to confidently use the bus. Ensuring access to affordable public transit in the Spokane region, STA is doing its part to build a stronger community and stronger economy for all. You can learn more about STA’s 10-year plan at
