Do you know the song "The Wheels on the Bus?" Well transpose that tune to the words in the book... "The children at the playground Run, run, run Run, run, run Run, run, run The children at the playground run, run, run while they play." This fun book will have active kids using their imaginations to be part of the fun that's happening at the playground too. The adorable characters, whoosh, hop, teeter-totter, climb, slide, rock, munch and slurp their picnic, just to name a few. Their energy and smiles will bring happiness to those sharing the story together. The book encourages kids to get outside and play with friends transferring their pent up vigour for active movement in creative and healthy ways. The book is a personal invitation to come out and play at the playground... the fun and happiness is contagious.

You already know the tune! This is a cute book based on the well-known children's song; The Wheels on the Bus. As this just happens to be one of my grandson's favourite songs, it was perfectly suited to him and he was mesmerised from the start. The illustrations were excellent, colourful and clear, if slightly childish. There was a small issue of language here though, as none of the parents who read the book along with me, had any idea what a teeter-totter was, and everyone ended up substituting the word see-saw. Similarly, frisbee would have fitted the rhyme better than disc towards the end. Never mind, small niggles really, my grandson loved it and that's what counts.

I love singing with my grandchildren and the kids at school and church. This cute book is written so you can sing the tune from "The Wheels on the Bus" with the story. A trip to the playground and all the activities that entails are written about and illustrated with bright, vibrant colours. This book promotes outdoor play, playing with others and having fun. The repetitive words and the familiar tune will have children "reading" and singing along with you in no time. The text is age appropriate and easy to read. I am still humming the song long after reading it to my grandson this weekend. This book would make a wonderful addition to a family library or a pre-school or kindergarten classroom. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
