I really liked this book, with plenty of rhymes we already knew like wheels on the bus and here is the church, here is the steeple etc. along with some new ones like Johnny, Johnny whoops. As much as I did my best to engage my little one in some of these fun rhymes, they just didn't seem to captivate his attention. However I did notice some of these same rhymes in a music class we are in and when carried out in a group setting he does seem somewhat more interested. Final thoughts: a lot of these same rhymes can now be found online and with music and motion are just that much more alluring to little ones.
