I'm not sure if there is a song by this title or not, but the way this book is written it appears that it 'could' be a song. Each page is repeatative lines from the pages before only adding another form of transportation. As each form of transportation is introduced so is the noise it makes, like a plane goes vroom, bike goes ring ring, etc. A beginning reader could easily learn to read this book over a period of time since so much of it is repeatative. About half way through my 4 year old ...more
An engaging and thoroughly enjoyable way of encouraging young children to use onomatopoeia and expressive language. Simply written and charmingly illustrated, I have found this book to be a great accompaniment to helping children with communication difficulties learn connections with colours, sounds and transport - because of it's simple nature it can be effectively used with PECS to create sentences such as "I see yellow school bus" or with the audio book edition (beware the catchy tune - it ...more
The book I read most to my sons when they were growing up. We had so much fun with the rhythm of the story but mostly them remembering not only the items but the colours and sounds they made. I always smile when I see this book on my bookshelf and every now and again, we pull it out again for a quick fun read together.
This book is a best seller and is appropriate for pre-k/k age range. This book focuses on the fun childhood game of I spy, and the children are picking out different vehicles on the way to school to a very upbeat tune. This is a very catchy song which will be helpful for children of a younger age, I personally thought it was very cute and would definitely play it in my classroom. I also think that this book would work well if there is a "vehicle" or "transportation" theme of the week.

This story is wonderful for introducing students to different modes of transportation. The repetitive, I spy and I hear phrases helps children to learn about how they use their sense of sight and hearing. In the story all the modes of transportation have alliteration and rhyme to describe the sounds the vehicles make. Also, each vehicle is described with rich adjectives and color words. The story builds vocabulary and helps children learn color words.

A great focus on introducing and reinforcing colors, different modes of transportation that encourages listening skills when used with the CD. The CD is the words from the book transformed into a song. The book is also great for classroom management with a focus on: I spy with my litte eye, You can hear with your little ear. Which leads children to understand about using listening ears and looking eyes. This would also be a great story for the flannel board or story theatre.
This book is great for teaching children about different ways of transportation. It is also a song so you can sing along if you would like to. The rhyming in this book is well put together. The vocabulary is a great conversation starter and will open up opportunities for the kids to learn more about transportation.
We all go traveling by is a great book for memorization. The students in my kindergarten placement loved reading this book. I made the reading lesson more interesting by allowing the students to create their own headbands of the different characters that appear in the story. When it was their particular part of the story, the students would act out their parts and show off their headbands.
This book is so much fun to read because it is a song as well! You can play so many different hands on activities/games with your children. It teaches all about the different types of transportation. It is also great for learning about numbers!
