Reviews - What do customers think about Wheels on the Bus (Raffi Songs to Read)?
Songs to read books. Oct 19, 2007
My sister is a principal and highly recommeded this book for my grandchildren. THey love to read and sing so what better gift than to have it all wrapped into one.
The Pages of This Book go Flip and Turn Sep 8, 2006
Timing is everything to read this book, which is really a song. Although the notes are at the end to hint how the words should be read, without hearing it sung first and reading it out loud in a dull monotonous fashion a toddler may look at the reader as if to ask "Why bother?" Then I heard it on one of the CDs and now the words flow beautifully and make me read and read, read and read, all through the night.
A great book with many things to talk about Jul 21, 2006
I bought this when my daughter was 13 months, and after 7 months she still loves this book. There are different people in the bus - adults, kids, elderly, pets, etc., and many things happening on and off the bus.
When my daughter refuses to drink her milk, I'll turn to the page where the baby is happily drinking from the bottle, then she will take her cup and start drinking.
Try Raffi's CD as well. He sang the song to a cheerful tones with kids in the background - my daughter loves it.
Love it! Mar 17, 2006
This is the second copy I'm buying as the 1st one was read until it fell apart! My 14 month old LOVES this book.
Good version for toddlers Oct 20, 2005
My 18-month-old grandson enjoys this song (and "bus" was one of his first words). He isn't real excited about the book yet, but I think he will enjoy it later when he can sing it himself. My only problem with the book is that two of the pages were upside down. But because it's a board book, I was able to separate the pages with my nailfile and paste them back in right side up with library glue (one of the perks of being a librarian).
