"The wheels on the bus go round and round...all over town." A delightfully inventive full-color picture book edition of a favorite contemporary action song contains durable pages with manipulative functions such as bus doors that open and close, windshield wipers which swish back and forth, a bus driver who gestures "move on back" to his passengers, windows that go up and down, and riders who go bumpety-bump. Visual sub-plots in this sturdy, inviting book feature various passengers as well as a bus stop in front of the public library. A final double page spread cleverly recapitulates the bus trip and the verses. The adult/child/infant passengers are from diverse racial backgrounds. (Ages 3-7)
