A racy, rhythmical picture book from a dynamic picture book duo
A little girl wants to visit her father AND she wants to learn to ride her bicycle, which seems to her the perfect reason to persuade him to help her learn. She has all the trouble with balancing and speed control that every learner remembers – but at last she is whipping down the path in the park screaming: “It’s all right – you can let go now.” But Dad sees his daughter speeding away and he wonders: will she really come back to him?

PreSchool-Grade 2-Megan wants to learn how to ride a bike so she can get from her mother's house to her father's all by herself. Her dad tells her that it is difficult to learn, "But the view when you get to the top of the hill,/And the feel of the wind in your hair!/And the freedom to go wherever you please/And to know you can get yourself there-/That must be worth a few little knocks/And maybe a bruise or two-." Megan gathers up her courage and gives it a try but warns her father not to let go. As they fly down the hill, Megan takes off by herself. Dad is a bit sad until she returns and gives him a great big hug. The whimsical watercolor illustrations are humorous and create a sense of movement throughout. This is a feel-good story that will be perfect for family storytimes as it reminds loved ones that it is necessary to let go of children and let them grow up, but that the love between parents and children will always remain.
