Awesome Interactive Book and My Toddler's Favorite!
Reviewed in the United States on December 6, 2013
I bought this board book version after reading it in the library with my toddler and falling in love with it! It's durable for a toddler and perfect size for her hands with no worries about ripping the pages. We love all the Karen Katz books and her trademark babies and colorful and fun illustrations. I've been teaching my daughter the original "Wheels on the Bus" song so this book was a perfect compliment to that and includes some of the original lyrics, such as "The Wheels on the Bus go round and round," "the doors on the bus go open and close," and "the wipers on the bus go swish swish swish," as well as unique lyrics like "the babies on the bus bounce bumpity bump" and "the babies on the bus sing la-la-la."
My favorite thing about this book is the interaction factor. As I sing each page to my daughter, I have her do hand motions for each page, such as opening and closing her hands for the doors, moving her hands side to side for the wipers, and bouncing her on my lap for when the babies bounce on the bus. It always makes her laugh as well as gets her involved with the story/song. It also teaches movement to a melody. We read this book every day and it never gets old! If your child loves "The Wheels on the Bus" he or she will love Karen Katz's version!
