The 25th anniversary edition of a beloved classic

Over a million young readers have enjoyed the wheels that go round, doors that open and shut, and people who go bumpety-bump. Today it remains as fresh and engaging as when it was first published twenty five years ago.

To celebrate the anniversary, Paul O. Zelinsky has created an all-new cover featuring twenty five, hidden 25s. Some are the number 25 and others are 25 of something in the picture. Can you find them all?

I wholeheartedly Agree with everyone else's comments about this book, but I also wanted to add for anyone who is concerned that this book is very durable. I didn't think it would last, but it has!

Delightful for a child of any age but especially in the 2-3 year range! We love it.

This wonderfully illustrated, pop-up version of this great traditional song, has been a favorite of both of our children. They enjoy the interaction with the book, while they sing the song.

A great book for children to learn how things are moving: open and shut, back and forth, up and down, etc. It's a fun song you can sing while learning what these words mean!

I bought this book for my granddaughters who are one -- they loved the song when they were younger. They like books with pull tabs/flaps so much that they will sit still while I read them one. However, the pages need to be relatively simple, and the pages in this book are too cluttered. I did not even enjoy it!

We bought this book for our 2 year old daughter and she loves spinning the wheels and playing with the other movable parts of the book. She loves to sing the wheels on the bus song as we play and read the book. Expensive but worth it.

I purchased this book for my 18 month old granddaughter because a friend had passed on an older, very worn copy of it to us. She loved it, but many of the moving parts were torn or missing, and I wanted her to experience it fresh & new. She loves it! She has learned to be gentle with it now, and delights in making the wipers work, the wheels roll, the windows slide, shush the babies, etc. But the illustrations are so rich in detail that studying each page is delightful too. And of course, the song is so engaging that it keeps being asked for "again" many times over. Great gift, but the moving parts require a bit of gentleness.

My boys both love this book! They have such a great time opening and closing the doors & windows - and playing with all of the other moving parts!! We do have to watch them witht the book so they don't rip it, but it holds up well even with a nutty 2.5 year old! Great book!!
