The Boy on the Bus by Ms. Penny Dale


The Boy on the Bus by Ms. Penny Dale

The boy on the bus drives round and round, round and round, but who wants to ride on his bus? Ducks, pigs, a horse - who else? A host more noisy animal passengers! So jump on board the bus and get ready to join in and sing-along with this energetic nursery song.


Devotees of Penny Dale's delightful and imaginative books for small children will be familiar with the exuberant little lad driving the bus in this singalong storybook in which that old favourite, 'The Wheels on the Bus', is given the farmyard treatment. The Glasgow Herald Nearly every toddler knows the Wheels on the Bus song - but this joyful book is an even better version. The Northern Echo Children will have as much fun learning the names of each of the various animals, as they have singing along to one of their favourite nursery rhymes. Irish World
