THE WHEELS ON THE BUS
Volume 16 Number 2
While waiting with her granddaughters for the bus to take them back home after shopping for winter coats, a grandmother decides to teach her two granddaughters a song that her granny taught her when she was young. Following this introduction, Kovalski presents the familiar song that has been a favourite with children for many years.Kovalski has been able to translate the excitement of the two heroines as well as the understanding of a grandmother who does not over-react when the two girls decide on similar coats. The passengers on the double-decker bus are cleverly introduced and children will enjoy following them on their trip. Kovalski takes the children through the lyrics of eight verses of the song. The illustrations are lively and full of small details that children will discover as they read the story. This is a well-designed book that will be a favourite with children for many years to come.
