I participated today in Little Boy Blue's classroom. It was the tail-end of two weeks of transportation-themed activities, where the preschool brings in tons of different vehicles for the kids to explore. Today was a Jeep. Yesterday, sadly (for me), was the ice cream truck.
So, anyway, I gave you a list of train songs last week. Here, then, are more songs about getting around, this time focusing on cars, trucks, bikes, and a whole bunch of other ways of getting around by wheel.
(And, as always, your favorites that I've missed are welcome in the comments.)
