Have fun with "voices" in the story. In "And the Cars Go..." many distinct "voices" are included such as an proper Engish woman, a "cool" teenager, and excited children. Reading each of these "parts" in different "voices" allows children to follow the story and recognize which characters are speaking, plus it's just plain fun for the listener (as well as the reader!).
Songs & Activities
1 - We sang the story, "The Wheels on the Race Car" to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." during this storytime.
2 - We created steering wheels and driver licenses, then drove our pretend cars throughout the library, in a line behind Janice who carried a "Stop" and "Go" sign, turning it at intervals. We took tight turns around bookcases, went "fast" and "slow," and even stopped to gas up!
