Tips to share The wheels on the ute go round and round by Loraine Harrison and Claire Richards

April 15, 2019

When sharing this book, point out the words that feature in the illustrations. For example, the WOM-BAT number plate and the “Welcome to the Aussie Bush Bash” banner on the last page. Pointing out print when you read stories together and when you’re out and about at the shops, the park or in the car, is a great way to build print awareness — which is an important early literacy skill.

This book is also a great one to encourage interactivity — which will enhance the experience for everyone. Do the actions together on each page – munch munch, hop hop, up and down, squawk squawk, hiss hiss hiss. Can you make up some new ones together?
