Opinion

From Library Staff

Imitating a menagerie of non-human bus passengers, people singing along with this take-off of the traditional "wheels on the bus" will have a marvelous time. No wonder this book is a classic!

Children enjoy making the animal sounds as they sing along with me. They like the pictures of the party at the end of the book. And we especially like singing about the spraying skunks.

Lots of fun for very young children as they get to tell you what noise each animal makes in this play on The Wheels on the Bus.

A hilarious spin on the classic song, this bus ride is packed with fun!

This is one of my go-to books for Preschool Storytime. Kids love to help "sing" this book while figuring out what's going to happen next, and how the people feel being on a crowded bus with a bunch of animals. It's great for vocabulary building too, since instead of "snakes" it's the "vipers on the bus" that go "hiss hiss hiss." Highly recommended.

Another fun version of "The Wheels on the Bus." You can have lots of fun making all the animal noises!

You're in for a grrr-eat ride on this bus! The same ol' tune but with a new fun twist - one our storytime favourites!

A sweet variation on the classic featuring exotic animals like vipers and skunks who wreak havoc on the bus. My son's favourite is the tiger (who goes roar, roar, roar). It is his Chinese zodiac sign, after all ;)

A fun sing-able book. The kids enjoy the twist on the familiar "Wheels on the Bus" song.
