Everyone Can Learn to Ride a Bicycle by Chris Raschka-ADVISABLE

Raschka, Chris Everyone Can Learn to Ride a Bicycle.  32 pgs. Schwartz & Wade, 2013. $16.99.  PICTURE BOOK.  This book teaches you to have courage when you ride a bike.  Even though learning to ride a bike can be hard, the author encourages you to never give up and promises that someday you will get it right.  The book is about trying again and again, until you are finally riding!  Even though the book centers around learning to ride a bike, the message could be shared when attempting to master any new skill.  The words are simple, yet powerful. This would be a great addition to any class or home library and would be a springboard for further discussions about picking yourself up and trying anything a second time. The illustrations are incredible. They are unique and unlike most books we read.  Pre-K.  EL(K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL.
