Watching from the windows of their zebra-striped all-terrain bus, a group of happy children arrives at the wildlife park. They're joining in the catchy refrain that "the wheels on the bus go round and round", encouraging readers to do exactly the same! As the bus drives the children all aroundthe park, it's the animals who take centre-stage, allowing this much-loved rhyme to enter new territory, steered by Jan Ormerod's fresh and lively interpretation of the song. So, with the established rhythm of the song put in motion by the bus, children can join in as the "antelopes spring so high in the air", "the otters in the pool float paw in paw", and "the llamas in the field go trot, trot, trot". And, of course, there are actions inspired by the animals' antics,too. Lindsey Gardiner has created colourful collage illustrations bursting with expressive and energetic animals that children just won't be able to resist wanting to copy as they leap, splash, and roll over the pages! So it's a book for more than reading: it's a book for climbing aboard, singingalong to, and joining in with . . . all . . . day . . . long!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Musical Safari Adventure This book is a fresh, creative interpretation of the song The Wheels on the Bus. The author cleverly showcases the behaviour of the animals in each verse. I love that she has chosen lesser known animals that the children on the safari bus see when they travel through the park. The friendly animals wave goodbye to the children at the end. My toddler loved the song and loved the active animals.
