The Bicycle Man is a story about a school in Japan that is having a sports day. This is a day when children have a competition in different sports. When two American soldiers show up everyone becomes shy. The soldiers start joking around and everyone has a good time.

This book is not what I expected it to be about. It was a nice look inside a Japanese tradition and about the experience of these children with two American soldiers. Especially after World War II it is nice to see an uplifting portrayal of Japanese and Americans having fun together.

This book could be used for a bicycle celebration day at the public library to encourage children and their families to ride bikes. ( )

Author retells the joy of a special day. Japanese kids see American soldiers for the first time. They enjoy the Americans and rejoice with them!

The Bicycle Man is a story about a school in Japan who is having Sportsday, a day where children compete against each other in different sports. When two American solders show up, everyone is shy at first until the solders start acting silly. This is a story that really happened in the authors past so it is very interesting.
