Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In twenty-four pages, Barraclough offers young children some basic tips about safely riding a bicycle. The book has a pattern as do the others in the "Stay Safe" series. It sets the stage with "Riding a bicycle is fun," and follows it with a question, "Do you know how to stay safe?" The spreads that follow provide a negative example/answer on the left hand page and a positive/correct answer on the right hand page. For example, "Never ride a bicycle that is too big," which shows a boy whose feet cannot touch the ground. The correct example shows a girl seated on a bike wither her feet firmly placed on the ground. The book ends with a recap of all the safety rules that appeared in the book. There is also a picture glossary, an index page, and a note to parents and teachers. The book also introduces a multiethnic group of kids and other individuals in its pictures—a subtle message, which goes along with the stronger lesson relating to bicycle safety.
