All aboard and off we go on the bus to the watering hole!
The wheels on the bus go round and round, taking a chorus of animal friends along for the ride. Can you identify each one? A lion roars, flamingos flap, and a hyena laughs a big ha-ho-hee. Don't forget to watch out for the crocodile, whose jaws go snap. Together, a simple bus ride becomes a grand adventure. Toddlers and parents, one and all, can sing and move along.
Jane Cabrera's Story Time gives favorite nursery rhymes and songs a new toddler-friendly twist. These interactive favorites feature bold, bright, illustrations and catchy refrains. Don't miss other fun titles including Old Macdonald Had a Farm, If You're Happy and You Know It, and Over in the Meadow.

"Readers will enjoy the journey Cabrera illustrates with her easily recognizable style—bright hues outlined in black, with a finger-paint–like texture. Sure to be a lively addition to storytimes and one of those titles that are begged to be read aloud again and again."—Kirkus Reviews
"The exuberant oil illustrations are beautifully bright and lush, done in tropical colors that provide a vivid backdrop for the bus and its passengers. Although several books are based on the song, this one should be a surefire winner, and it will certainly enliven storytimes. Not to be missed."—School Library Journal
"With its large, clearly defined pictures of animals and its knack for encouraging audience participation, this cheerful picture book will be fun to share with young children in libraries and classrooms."—Booklist
