The wheels on the bus go round and round on the way to the watering hole. But who's on the bus?
A lion roars, flamingos flap, and a hyena laughs a big ha-ho-hee as they travel on the bus with their animal friends. Don't forget to watch out for the crocodile too, whose jaws go snap! Together, a simple trip becomes a raucous adventure that young readers can sing and move along with at any story hour, family reading time, or energy-filled morning.
Jane Cabrera's Story Time celebrates children's best-loved read along nursery rhymes and songs. These interactive favorites are given a new twist by award-winning artist Jane Cabrera and feature her bold, bright, kid-friendly illustrations. Other titles in the series include Ten in the Bed, Old Mother Hubbard, and Old MacDonald Had a Farm.

"Readers will enjoy the journey Cabrera illustrates with her easily recognizable style—bright hues outlined in black, with a finger-paint–like texture. Sure to be a lively addition to storytimes and one of those titles that are begged to be read aloud again and again."—Kirkus Reviews
"The exuberant oil illustrations are beautifully bright and lush, done in tropical colors that provide a vivid backdrop for the bus and its passengers. Although several books are based on the song, this one should be a surefire winner, and it will certainly enliven storytimes. Not to be missed."—School Library Journal
"With its large, clearly defined pictures of animals and its knack for encouraging audience participation, this cheerful picture book will be fun to share with young children in libraries and classrooms."—Booklist
