ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Meggie, who has Down syndrome, had watched her big brother ride the “big yellow school bus” for years. As Kindergarten approached, Meggie was REALLY excited about joining her brother on the bus. But, the school was worried about whether she had the skills to ride the bus safely and recommended that she ride on the Special Education van. Meggie's mom, Kathy, advocated for her and the school agreed that Meggie could ride the bus as long as she consistently showed she was a safe, responsible passenger. Knowing that Meggie loves music, Kathy wrote these lyrics to help her learn... the Rules of the Bus! Kathy asked Rick to record the song and this is the result. Meggie loves "her" song and listens to it daily. The best part is, it played a huge role in helping Meggie achieve something she wanted to do: ride the big yellow bus to school.

Wonderful song for all children!
This song was written for a former preschool student to help her learn how to ride the regular schoolbus. This is an amazing song and an incredible tool to use for children of all abilities to help them learn the rules of riding the schoolbus! I use this song to support my students moving up to kindergarten. Thank you Rick and everyone who helped in making this song a hit!!!
