Review: Froggy Rides a Bike by Jonathan London
Title: Froggy Rides a Bike
Author: Jonathan London
Challenges: 101 Books in 1001 Days, PB&J Challenge, What An Animal Challeng
No. of Pages: 32
Froggy just got his very first bike, and it's exactly what he wanted. Almost. Finishing touches like a bell and a horn have to be added before Froggy is ready to ride. Then, surrounded by cheering friends, Froggy starts to pedal. Oops! He falls off. He tries again. Oops! Riding a bike is hard! After a long day, and a few bumps and bruises, Froggy finally learns to ride—and once he does he can't wait to go again.
Froggy Rides a Bike is a reassuring reminder that practice makes perfect— and it's sure to make kids eager to learn to ride on their own.
What an appropriate book for the time. My nephew is getting a bike for Christmas and he will be just like Froggy the first several times and be all wobbly. I guess that is why we are starting him out on training wheels
