From the creators of the best-selling Roadworks series, a fresh new celebration of transportation!
This is the way we skate along, skate along, skate along,
This is the way we skate along
on a sunny, funny morning.
Borrowing from the childhood perennial and favourite song 'This is the way ...', a happy group of children
scoot, bike, bus, swing, sail, run and ride their way across town to join a birthday surprise.
