Hot Wheels

The wheels on the bus are burning rubber through the jungle in Jane Cabrera's new picture book version of this favorite song.

Singing is a fantastic way to help your child's language development because it stretches out words and makes it easier to hear the smaller sounds within them.  Try reading this story and then singing the song to see how your children respond to the slower pace.  Children are more likely to sing along with an adult (especially a parent/caregiver) than alone to music.  So, even if the rest of the world believes your singing should be confined to the shower or car, it's time to belt it out!

If you need a little help getting started, pick up a copy of our Storytime Playlist next time you are in.
