Hey everyone! I’m back today with another great book. I am so ready for the spring and the warm weather that is upon us after a cold winter. So, what a better way to start spring than to show you a book that will get you excited to be outdoors. I’d Rather Be Riding My Bike, by Eric Pinder, is about a young boy who can only think about one thing during school… riding his bike. As the boy attends school on a regular day, he cannot wait to get home so he can ride his bike. After doing chores, homework, and walking the dog, the young boy finally gets to ride his bike and loves it.
I loved this book because it brought back memories of my childhood. When I was a kid, I always loved going outside and riding my bike, until it was dark sometimes! This is a great book for kids because it will get them excited about riding their bikes and being outdoors. The wording and rhyming that is throughout the book tells the story in a fun, creative way. Kids and adults will want to be reading this story over and over again because they can put themselves in the boy’s shoes. At the end of the story, it also gives a brief history of bicycles, which is really cool and interesting to read.
In a review on Amazon’s website, Emlyn Chand says “I’d Rather Be Riding My Bike is an adorable story for children and parents alike. Not only does it rhyme (and that scores major points with me), but it also encourages healthy, outdoor play time, which let’s face it, kids need much more of these days.”
The illustrations, done by John Cardinal, are very colorful, creative, and put you right in the story. So if you are looking for a great book that will get you excited to get you and/or your kids outdoors and ride bikes, i’d definitely check out this book. You’ll be riding before you know it!
