I read the book Franklin rides a bike by Paulette Bougeois and Brenda Clark. Boom, onto his butt he goes that's what happened to Franklin when he was trying to ride his bike without training wheels. He was jealous that all of his friends could ride a bike without training wheel. They would all be having so much fun with races and hanging out together. He tried once and didn't quite get it and fell and just gave up right away. Then he remembered that all of his friends had had this problem before, but not in the same activity. He was inspired because all of them have achieved something when they set there mind to it and that's what he wanted to do and be proud of it. I liked this book because it was inspiring and it made me happy because 1) I love turtles and 2) I had trouble riding a bike too. This book is in the Franklin series and there is also a Franklin television show which features the same thing as the book. Some of the other Franklin books are Franklin in the Dark, Franklin is Lost, Franklin goes to School, Franklin has a Sleepover, Franklins new Friend, Franklin's Bad Day and many many more. I would recommend this book to people who like short, inspiring stories that are also fun. This is a children's book. I like to read this series to my little brother before he goes to bed (he's 3). A lot of little kids would like this book. The writing style is easy because it is meant for younger kids and it is not hard to understand. I would rate this book a 5 star out of 5. -Hannah
