This book is a cute and fun story about learning how to ride a bicycle. Everyone can do it, even though you might have to practice a lot. This book has a lot of fun and colorful illustrations. I would recommend this book for reading levels k-2nd grade, as well as for any child learning how to ride a bike. ( )

While I truly love Raschka's style of illustration in A BALL FOR DAISY, for some reason that same style just doesn't work for me in his other books. In EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO RIDE A BICYCLE, I think the father/grandfather with the elongated, floppy head is creepy! The story itself is a sequential piece that focuses on the different steps it takes to learn to ride a bicycle. It reminds us that it is not an easy process and you have to keep at it, but once you figure it out, "you'll never forget how." ( )

A great tale of perseverance and triumph as Chris Raschka goes through the steps of learning to ride a bicycle. It's a book you'll never forget - just like riding a bike! ( )

A sweet picture book detailing the steps to learning how to ride a bicycle. It shows the difficulty of the process, and the majority of the book presents the challenges one may encounter. However, the protagonist does not give up and eventually learns how to ride her bike, demonstrating the great trait of determination and the benefit it has on a learning process. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375870075, Hardcover)

Learning to ride a bike is one of the most important milestones of childhood, and no one captures the emotional ups and downs of the experience better than Chris Raschka, who won the 2012 Caldecott Medal for A Ball for Daisy. In this simple yet emotionally rich "guide," a father takes his daughter through all the steps in the process—from choosing the perfect bicycle to that triumphant first successful ride. Using very few words and lots of expressive pictures, here is a picture book that not only shows kids how to learn to ride, but captures what it feels like to fall . . . get up . . . fall again . . . and finally "by luck, grace, and determination" ride a bicycle! 

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:54:15 -0400)

A father teaches his daughter all about bicycle riding, from selecting the right bike to trying again after a fall.
