I’m always on the hunt for books I can sing with my students, and my collection of singable stories has grown exponentially since Parker was born. While I love to write my own melodies for books that don’t already have one, I like having plenty of “ready-to-sing” classics on hand.
This month while I was combing Amazon for a few new additions, I came across this super fun version of The Wheels on the Bus — it doesn’t get more classic than that! Each page includes illustrations that come to life when you pull the tabs, which makes the book even more interactive.
I put together a recording of this version, which doesn’t stray too far from the song we all learned back in preschool or earlier. It’s yours to download for free; just enter $0 when asked to name your price :)
I have another singable story to share with you soon thanks to my mom, who picked it up as a Christmas gift for Parker. In the meantime, here are some more of my very favorites for your browsing pleasure. Feel free to share your own must-haves!
This same author has a great version of Knick Knack Paddywack(this old man)! I use both of these books often!
Good to know! Thanks for the heads up, Charlie :)
And the pictures that jump out in these books, the animation is wonderful. Not that they literally jump out, but you know what I mean.
Good traveling tunes!
Absolutely! My little ones are having so much fun with it!
