Praise For Born to Ride: A Story About Bicycle Face

"An important part of history engagingly told"

— Kirkus Reviews

"Garrity-Riley's sunny art features round-faced, pink-cheeked characters; a palette of blues and browns, highlighted with splashes of red and yellow; and many period details. A visual subplot involves the children's mother, who is depicted painting voting rights posters, welcoming fellow suffragettes to tea, sewing her own bloomers, and taking a bicycle ridewith her daughter."

— Booklist

"Simple but thoughtfully detailed, Garrity-Riley’s illustrations incorporate multiple references to women’s suffrage campaigns."

— Publishers Weekly
