to teach children that people may never believe in you but you can do what you put your mind to. also a great book to use for expression.

This is another great story by David Shannon that can be used for a great lesson on reading with expression. Students will enjoy this silly story about a duck riding a bike because no one has heard of such a thing! ( )

This book is so cute! It is good to use as a mentor text during snap shot planning and to help the students to learn about reading with expression. It can be used during a lot of the steps during writers workshop. ( )

The message shows to be brave what you set your mind to do. Even if you think it won't be possible and people might think you are crazy, just do it. You will realize that it just took courage and bravery. Be unique. The book could be used in Kindergarten through 3rd grade focusing on animals and achieving goals.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439050235, Hardcover)

When Duck gets the zany idea to ride a bike one day, each animal on the farm has a reaction. "M-o-o-o," says Cow. But what she's really thinking is, "A duck on a bike? That's the silliest thing I've ever seen!" Pig and Pig say "Oink," thinking all the while, "Duck is such a show-off!" But it's not until a crew of kids shows up and leaves their bikes lying about that the true feelings of all the animals come to light, and for one brief, glorious moment, the farm is a mad, mad world of two-wheeling road hogs (and chickens and horses and goats). David Shannon, the creator of Caldecott Honor Book, No, David!, fills the pages of this barnyard romp with sun-soaked color, charming animals, and unusual perspectives. We see Cat, for example, looming belly-first in the foreground, with Duck merrily pedaling away in the distance. The story itself is nothing to write home about--No, David! is far snappier and more original--but younger kids may well enjoy the repetitive crescendo and the goofy finale. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
