Everyone Can Learn to Ride a Bicycle

Christopher Raschka

The art of riding a bicycle is a colorful adventure in the hands of Caldecott Medalist Christopher Raschka. A little girl and her father choose a new bicycle then tackle the task of learning to ride. The brave little girl falls, tries again, and is encouraged and comforted by Dad. Raschka’s watercolor illustrations give fluid movement and emotion to the process as the pair work together. “Find the courage to try it again, again, and again” becomes “You are riding a bicycle! And now you’ll never forget how!” A respectful tribute to this marvelous rite of passage. Ages 4-6
