The Children at the Playground - Tracey M. Cox, Dolores Costello

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.
