Nimoshom loves to drive the school bus. Every day, on the way to and from school, he has something to say. Sometimes, he tells the children silly stories. Sometimes, he teaches the children a new word in Cree.

Nimoshom and His Bus introduces basic Cree words. A glossary is included in the back of the book.

The Cree pronunciation guide (pdf format) for this book is available for FREE. Click on the Download Lesson Plan button in the left-hand column.

Part language primer, part loving tribute, this picture book adds up to a lovely addition for most library collections.

We’re always delighted by books by Native writersespecially ones set in the present. The straightforward text is terrific. Hibbard’s illustrations perfectly capture the warmth and joy of the kids on that bus, and the guy who drives their bus. I highly recommend Nimoshom and His Bus! It’d be a simple thing to use other Native words in addition to–or instead of–the Cree words in the book.
—Debbie Reese,  American Indians in Children’s Literature

A simple but endearing glimpse of Cree language and life.

    Sweet story about a bus driver that teaches Cree words in the story. Loved the illustrations.
