Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: A duck decides to ride a bike and soon influences all the other animals on the farm to ride bikes too.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Monthly Selections - #2 February 2002
    /*Starred Review*/ Ages 3-6. One day, Duck gets an idea: "I bet I could ride a bike." And as thought is father to action, he is soon teetering around the farm on a bicycle. He rides past the animals, each with its own thoughts about bike riding: the cow thinks it's silly; the sheep is sure Duck will hurt himself; Dog considers it a neat trick; the cat can't be bothered. On a more personal note, the horse is sure he's faster than the bike, and the goat would like to eat it. Then some kids park their bikes near the house, and the animals suddenly become a lot more interested in bike riding: they all jump on and take a spin around the yard. The double-page spread of the cow, pig, horse, et al., pedaling away (some looking particularly fetching in helmets) is worth the price of the book. In fact, this whole bright book is tons of fun. The oversize format nicely accommodates Shannon's sly art, which fills up the pages. Each animal has a distinctive expression that can be easily seen by kids in the back row at story hour--the perfect place to share this exuberant piece.
