The Mommies on the Bus (Board book)


Set to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus,” this sweet and funny board book shows how mommies keep their kids entertained on the bus!

While a child might only think of how a bus’s wheels go round and round, round and round, round and round, mommies know to be prepared with “snacks, snacks, snacks.” And she’ll have to remind her child “here’s our stop, here’s our stop, here’s our stop!”
Hannah Eliot is a children’s book editor who lives in Vermont. Her favorite activities include editing (of course), writing, drawing, and spending time with her family!

For Airin O’Callaghan, drawing has always been a universal language that helped her communicate with family members spread out over the European continent. She got her bachelor’s degree in fine art photography and a master’s specializing in cyanotypes at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and another master’s in illustration from Academy of Art University. Airin worked on developing herself as both an artist and art educator until deciding to focus on being a professional artist. She now specializes in creating playful and engaging illustrations for children’s books. Airin lives in Berkeley, California. Visit her online at
