The Wheels on the Bus [DVD]

--and More Sing Along Favorites
"The Wheels on the Bus" By Paul O. Zelinsky "The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round!" (Wash, rinse, repeat) Follow the mind-blowing adventures of a city bus as it tools around, picking up people, dropping people off, and, er, picking up some more people. The lively artwork is the highlight of this straightforward tune toon. That and a score by the Bacon Brothers. Bam! Another "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" trivia item for you! "Dem Bones" By Bob Barner No, this isn't the much-awaited Vince Foster animated musical, but a version of the African American spiritual. You know, the one about the neck bone being connected to the shoulder bone and so on and so forth. This particular incarnation is delivered by a bunch of dancing skeletons. "Over in the Meadow" By John Langstaff This ditty combines the attractive illustrations of woodland animals and their habitats, with the practical lessons of learning to count. Marvel as your toddler starts quantifying beavers, bees, foxes, and squirrels. "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" By Rose Bonne and Alan Mills The classic tale of a woman with an incredible colon and her struggle with the temptation of using Syrup of Ipecac. The old lady downs animal after animal, and refuses the beckoning hand of death-all the drama captured by the unmistakable croon of Burl Ives. Two bonus stories can be found in the extras bin: "I Want a Dog" by Dayal Kaur Khalsa chronicling the wanton desire of a child for a dog, who ends up inventing an awesome new fad: walking a roller skate and pretending it's a pet; and "The Chinese Violin," by Madeleine Thien, a trippy tale about a single dad and his kid and their struggles with poverty and how violin music is inspiring and freeing.
