About this deal

A 2011 scientific study entitled "Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" examined the ability of pigeons to solve the traveling salesperson problem by taking the shortest route to visit multiple feeders in a laboratory. The authors found that pigeons "appeared to plan ahead multiple steps," which provided "clear and strong evidence that animals other than primates are capable of planning sophisticated travel routes."

What about the bus driver: should he be punished? How about us, if we let the pigeon drive? If the bus driver had left and told us it was okay to let the pigeon drive the bus, should we let him?

What a lesson for kids. Peer pressure. Bad attitudes. Silliness. Safety. Keeping quiet. All the things to show why it's good not to 'give in' to someone just because they try to get you to do something.In Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, a bus driver begins the story by expressing to readers the importance of not letting the pigeon drive the bus while he is gone. However, the persuasive pigeon spends the entirety of the book trying to talk us into letting him drive the bus. Bird, Elizabeth (July 6, 2012). "Top 100 Picture Books Poll Results".

Additionally, kids will likely conclude that it is better to believe people who have previously established themselves as trustworthy, although other, more deep philosophical issues could come up here. For example, there is the issue of whether the person making an argument should matter or whether the argument should stand or fall on its own merits: you could ask, what the difference might be if it was your teacher telling you to let the pigeon drive the bus rather than the pigeon itself. However, what if you still knew it wasn’t safe? What if your mother told you so? This section may prompt children to think about rationality. They may recognize that, to be convinced of something, evidence and/or good reasons should be required. Your mom can give you good reasons to make sure to eat lunch every day, which is why it’s good to be convinced that eating lunch every day is a good thing. A question to prompt this could be: what could the pigeon do to convince us it’s safe to let him drive? You might hear: show us his driver’s license, provide evidence of past driving, and so on. Then, there are good follow-up questions, like, when do you need evidence to believe someone? Marquis Bundy (Teenager / City Worker) is beyond excited to be in this show! His journey with YPT began with Knuffle Bunny last year! A couple of his other Chicagoland credits include Little Shop of Horrors and You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown (Citadel Theatre Company), Godspell and Little Women (The Home Creative Co.), and A Christmas Sonata (Sigman Brother’s Productions.) He is from Des Moines, Iowa, where he has done additional theatre work, including choreographing and assistant directing. Marquis loves video games, being a barista, and being a lava lamp enthusiast. urn:lcp:dontletpigeondri00will_0:epub:1e7cda72-6651-4423-afa9-09506f30f745 Extramarc OhioLINK Library Catalog Foldoutcount 0 Identifier dontletpigeondri00will_0 Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t6n02bz37 Isbn 9780786819881 Chloe Belongilot (u/s Bus Driver, Ensemble) is a Chicago-based actress and teaching artist represented by Big Mouth Talent, and she is excited to be making her Young People’s Theatre debut!

What are some good and bad reasons to be convinced to let someone do something? Is feeling bad for them a good or bad reason? Is being scared of them a good or bad reason?
