Description

This hilarious new version of the beloved children's song "The Wheels on the Bus" will have young readers errping and roaring and honking along.

"The seals on the bus go "errp, errp, errp"
All through the town."

Two children and their parents board a city bus on their way to a party. At the next stop, who should get on but a group of seals, who holler "errp, errp, errp" at the top of their lungs. Each time the bus stops a new kind of animal joins the passengers and adds to the din, to the children's delight and the parents' annoyance. But when several hissing skunks want to come aboard, even the children cry "help! help! help!"

    A cute take on the traditional "Wheels on the Bus."

    I like reading this but usually have to clip some of the pages because it is a bit too long for the kids I read to. Plus it is difficult to make some of the noises.

    I think I’ve mentioned before that “The Wheels on the Bus” is one of Preschooler’s all-time favorite songs. We’re constantly on the lookout of new versions. In The Seals on the Bus, a family finds themselves amidst a noisy, traveling, zoo of seals, tigers, vipers, sheep, and more. The children are overjoyed, while the parents find themselves crying, “Help! Help! Help!” all around the town. Between the arrival of each new silly animal, the animal noises, and the fun illustrations, this quickly becomes a raucous read in the very best way.

    Genre: FantasySetting: 5 StarsReview: As the bus becomes filled, we read about all the animals on the bus and the noises they make on the bus. This book is a good example of fantasy because the events in this book could never take place in real life. This book is also a spin off of the song, "The Wheels on the Bus."Media: gouache, acrylic medium, pencil, and cut paper

    A spin-off of the classic song "The Wheels on the Bus," this interactive story includes animals and the sounds they make while riding on a bus.

    A take on the classic "Wheels on the Bus" song except in this case all the things on the bus are animals. Each verse adds a new animal to the bus, and just as with seals, they often cleverly rhyme with the words from the song. The expressions on the parent's and children's faces are priceless as each new animal climbs aboard.
