Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
"Riding a bicycle is fun! It also keeps your body healthy" begins this cheerful book of safety advice for young children. The most useful page is the one showing how to wear a helmet: not too far forward, not too far back, and snug under the chin. Most of the guidance, appropriately, is about dealing with cars. "Wear bright colors when you ride" so you can be seen by drivers, do not ride at night when "it is hard for drivers to see you in the dark," and "if you have to use the street, ride on the right side of the road." Children are told to have a bell or horn on their bike, and they are shown the proper hand signals for turning and stopping. The simple language will enable early readers to read this on their own, but given the content it should be discussed with an adult. Full-color, full-page photographs illustrate each tip; the child models are from diverse ethnic backgrounds. From the "Rookie Read-About Safety" series. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
