Synopsis: Lateef, a poor young boy living in a village in western Nigeria, works hard so he can rent a bicycle and ride with the other boys.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 2-Lateef passes the bicycle stall every day on his way home from school and longs to rent a bike like the other boys in his Nigerian village. He saves money by gathering firewood and mushrooms from the rain forest to sell at the market. At last the day arrives when he can rent a bike for the afternoon. With practice, Lateef masters the art of riding a two-wheeler. One day, the owner of the stall rolls out a new red bicycle that the youngster longs to ride. However, he must first prove to Babatunde that he is capable of taking care of the larger bike. Both characters learn the value of hard work and forgiveness when Babatunde allows him to ride the bike, only to have it returned in a bent and riddled condition. The richly hued watercolor illustrations infuse the landscape with jungle greens, burnt sienna, and buttery yellow backgrounds. However, the real details to be savored are in the warm facial expressions of Babatunde and Lateef, both of whom jump out of the background and into the heart of this charming story. Don't relegate this offering to the multicultural book list. It can be used anytime a smile is in order.
