From “The Wheels on the Bus” to “I’m a Little Teapot,” these classic songs combine movement and music to create a high-energy, fun experience for children. At the same time, children learn coordination skills and the musical concepts of form and expression.

This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that Fingerplays and Action Songs have inspired for generations!
