Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* From the reassuring title onward, this vibrant picture book describes learning to ride a bicycle—a monumental challenge for many children. A father guides his daughter through the process, which begins with choosing the perfect bike, watching others ride, and realizing that all those expert riders once learned this skill as a beginner, too. The girl begins to ride with the training wheels set low, then set high, and then removed. She takes some spills, gets back on, and tries again. When she is frustrated, her father encourages her to try again and again and again—and eventually, she can ride a bicycle. So much is heartening about the book, from the father’s consistently kind, matter-of-fact tone to the fact that the process begins with simple steps and leads up to more challenging ones. Rendered in Raschka’s signature style of fluid, kinetic brushstrokes, the ink-and-watercolor illustrations beautifully capture the action and emotion in each scene. (Safety-minded adults will also be happy to note that the girl is wearing an enormous helmet throughout the book.) Deceptively simple and perfectly paced for read-alouds, this latest from the two-time Caldecott medalist captures a child’s everyday experience with gentle, joyful sensitivity. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

With simple text and watercolor illustrations, a young girl discovers how to ride a bike, from training wheels and practice, to riding on her own. Children who are learning to ride a bicycle will take courage from this picture book.

It's really hard to find books about bikes! This one has art that makes me smile, and a good story about never giving up. I like it. It would make a great gift for a friend who is expecting or has kids, and loves bikes.
