Cars, buses, bikes on the street.
Let’s go outside and use our feet!
Cities are fun, so much to see.
Will you take a walk with me?

I hear the sounds from the music shop,
my ears tell me I need to stop.
Drums, horns, guitars, flutes,
loud bangs, and louder toots.
Tap twist stomp and sway
(illustration of a bike shop)
I look at bikes big and small,
bikes on the floor, bikes on the wall.
I want to ride one, see me go!
I pedal fast, I don’t do slow.
Squeal scream beep and bump
(illustration of a coffee shop)
I stop and look in the tiny cafe,
with smells of coffee and fresh beignets.
Tarts, scones, French croissants.
My tummy knows what it wants!
Sniff snuff tip and tap

I peek inside the noisy shop,
where sounds are loud, they never stop!
Cars are broken, tools on the floor,
grease and grime on the door.
Clink clank honk and hiss
(illustration of a hair salon)
I lean to see inside the shop,
scissors cutting, hair drops.
Hair is wet, hair is drying,
friends talking, kids crying.
Snip snap swish and swoosh
(illustration of a yoga studio)
I peer inside the large window,
people reach high, then stretch low.
Turning, twisting, bending around,
touching their toes on the ground.
Scrunch hunch thump and bump
(illustration of a book store)
I see the books, smell them too.
Many old, most are new.
Pages turned as books are read.
My favorite ones I take to bed.
Swish swash whoosh and swoosh
Friends, neighbors, people to meet.
Let’s keep walking on our street!
