About this title


Despite all her dreams of getting a bicycle for her birthday, Annie soon discovers that it takes more than dreams to learn how to ride it.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- The joy of learning to ride a bike, from fear of failure to tentative hope to triumphant mastery, is effectively captured in this sunny book. Young Annie decides she has had enough of her trike. She wants to "fly down the hill" like the boys she sees on their bicycles. On her birthday, her parents give her a blue bike without training wheels. Annie is chagrined when ". . . it feels impossible/ to fly, to even try/ to move a little." Her mother promises that it will get easier. The child keeps at it and, after a week, she's riding. Because she narrates the story, Annie's feelings are direct and immediate. Told in free verse, some lines are short, others long; some have inside verse, others no rhyme or meter. Reading the narrative aloud can be tricky, but it is effective and fun. McCully's familiar ink-and-watercolor illustrations are rich and informative. Personalities are enhanced through facial expressions and body language. Using a full palette of greens, the artist makes Annie's upper-middle-class neighborhood appear lush and appealing. Although the setting is affluent, the book's theme is broad. --Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
