A boy learns the difference between yesterday when he could not ride his bike and today when he leads all the bicyclists

From Publishers Weekly:

Yesterday was trouble for this aspiring biker. Yesterday meant wobbling, and falling, and stuck pedals, and sitting on the front stoop watching everyone else whiz by. But today is different. "Today I ride with the wind in my face," says a delighted child as he, too, finally soars down the street. First-timer Jakob zeroes in on this milestone childhood event like a pro; she writes in crisp, clean and insightful prose ("Yesterday I thought today would never come"). The book has a particularly appealing design; the rounded typeface swoops and wobbles along with the young rider, and the energetic lines of Davis's gaily colored, humorous scratchboard illustrations sustain the illusion of movement. Ages 4-7.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-Minimal text-one sentence per double-page spread-expresses the joy of a little boy who has just learned to ride his bike. He compares today's triumphant feelings with yesterday's despair, when he wondered if he'd ever learn to stay upright. Despite its brevity, the book conveys the child's emotions-youngsters will sense his pride in accomplishing this feat. Davis's illustrations, done using scratchboard, watercolor, marker, and film, are spare as well, and employ large shapes with flat areas of color. They complement the story nicely and add to it their own humorous details. A good choice for reading aloud.
