Raschka takes the reader through the experience of learning how to ride a bicycle. From the joy of picking out a bike to the struggle of falling down a hill. Courage and determination push this young bike rider to success.

A story about the trials of learning to ride a bicycle. Great for parents who want to tell the whole truth about what may happen. It could be a lesson on how determination pays off in the end.

The art/illustrations were bright and sort of abstract. Lost of color makes this very catchy for young kids. The concept is also one that every kid will experience at some point in their lives. ( )

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!

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