In this simple yet emotionally rich "guide," a father takes his daughter through all the steps in the process from choosing the perfect bicycle to that triumphant first successful ride. Using very few words and lots of expressive pictures, here is a picture book that not only shows kids how to learn to ride, but captures what it "feels" like to fall . . . get up . . . fall again . . . and finally "by luck, grace, and determination" ride a bicycle
