"The wheels on the bus go round and round.... All over town." This traditional song, a favorite of children everywhere,
is adapted and illustrated by Paul O. Zelinsky, winner of the Caldecott Medal for his lush version of Rapunzel, and
Caldecott honors for Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, and Swamp Angel. Fantastic paper engineering with movable
parts, flaps, and wheels that spin makes this an interactive book that young readers will love to pieces (maybe
literally!). Pull one tab to make the "wipers on the bus go swish swish swish," and another to see the "babies on the
bus cry Waah! Waah! Waah!" On closer inspection, children will be tickled to discover several subtle and humorous
subplots, as well as a full-circle finale: the last stop on the bus is at the Overtown public library, where the day's
program includes a folk singer. Guess what he's singing!
Zelinsky's warm, inviting illustrations are a perfect match for this classic play rhyme. Children who have learned
the hand motions to the song will enjoy helping the characters in the book enact their own roles. The back cover
includes the musical notation for "The Wheels on the Bus," so everyone can sing along. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
