    Mr. Walrus is a captivating story. It’s full of adventurou

    Mr. Walrus is a captivating story. It’s full of adventurous stops as the animals travel around town in an old school bus. They stop by the zoo, the fair, and a few other places. They’re concerned about making their 5 o’clock date. So, throughout their travel from place to place, they beg of Mr. Walrus: “Please, go on and drive. We can’t be late.” They make it home with just a few minutes to spare. It’s 4:45. Awaiting them is a gigantic plate of spaghetti. They’ve made their dinner date! This is a fun story, with great music, good topics to discuss, and plenty of opportunities for children to participate (hand claps can be heard throughout the story). The characters are mindful of the time as they continue to each destination, and they’re sure to say, “Mr. Walrus, please…” as they ask him to drive. It would be very easy to use Mr. Walrus in discussions about manners and time management.

    Mr. Walrus is a very friendly bus driver, helping his passengers

    Mr. Walrus is a very friendly bus driver, helping his passengers along the way to grandma's house, the zoo and a visit to grocer Tom. But they must make haste- they have a 5:00 date! They mark their route with the playful reminder of that 5:00 date in delightful song. A mark of Derrick's work- the three R's of “rhyme, rhythm and repetition” shows itself graciously here, with a catchy tune sure to pique the interest of your favorite young reader.

    It’s fun to watch this rowdy menagerie as they take a journey on Mr. Walrus’s school bus. The song is fun for kids and easy to follow. Kids can relate to the fun of taking a field trip, and the repetition of the chorus with the changing time keeps their attention. This Animalations book is pure fun, and it’s great to hear it sung on a video like this.
