Wheels on the Bus

Literacy Tip

Hi, my name is Lauren, and this is my daughter Ruby.

Songs with motions that go along help your child better understand the word’s meaning and boost your little one’s vocabulary.

Feel free to add your own characters or action words: For example, the cows on the bus go “moo, moo, moo” or The Mommies on the bus start jumping around, jumping around…”
