Synopsis: Young Herbie races his bike against Samantha.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—These titles are serviceable tools for the development of reading fluency; however, they offer nothing more. Herbie Bear and Samantha cannot agree on who is the winner of a race in Blue Bike. In Fire Truck, Herbie daydreams during a fire-safety program, imagining that he is at the scene of a fire. And in Fort, friends contribute items to a common play space, with Herbie providing the cookies. These books appear to have been dashed off quickly and contain an unfortunate number of errors in grammar and usage. In Fort, the authors write: "Everyone wanted to make their own fort." In Blue Bike, the text goes back and forth between past and present tense. Full-page illustrations are bold and lively but have a highly commercial, cereal-box look. Because of the uninspired writing, lack of character development, and unoriginal plots, these titles should find a place on library shelves only where decoding practice is the sole objective.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
