Overview

In this sequel to Chipper the Clown, Chipper travels the world in search of a new act to keep the crowds entertained...a unicycle seems like just the thing! How hard could it be since he already can ride a bicycle? After only one day of trying, Chipper takes the unicycle back to the store in frustration. He learns that you have to work long and hard to make something look easy. In the end, Chipper understands that some pursuits take time and effort to master, and he learns the importance of perseverance.

Chipper and the Unicycle by Don M. Winn can be used to demonstrate to children that it’s important to try new things, and that it’s okay to fail. Failing is not the end. We just need to pick ourselves up and keep trying while being patient with ourselves and not expecting perfection when learning something new.
