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. ( )

I know, I know. Chris Raschka is amazing. He's a two-time Caldecott Medal Winner. His watercolors are sublime. I just don't love him. I read this to a preschool class today, and while they were attentive and captured by the process of learning to ride a bike, one little girl shared that it was just too short. ( )

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.
