Duck on a Bike by David Shannon

One day down on the farm, Duck got a wild idea. "I bet I could ride a bike," he thought. He waddled over to where the boy parked his bike, climbed on and began to ride. At first he rode slowly and he wobbled a lot, but it was fun! Duck rode past Cow and waved to her. "Hello, Cow!" said Duck. "Moo," said Cow. But what she thought was, "A duck on a bike? That's the silliest thing I've ever seen!"

And so Duck rides past sheep, horse, and all the other barnyard animals. Suddenly, a group of kids ride by on their bikes and run into the farmhouse, leaving the bikes outside. Now ALL the animals can ride bikes, just like Duck!

I read to elementary school children. I had the opportunity to read this book to first graders. They noticed that some remarks by the animals were not nice, and mentioned it unprompted. They loved Duck's daring and especially made a lot of speculation on what Duck was thinking as he looked at the tractor on the last page. I really enjoy a book that continues beyond just listening to the story. The author has created just that. A story that makes minds wander. Great! Now I have to buy one for my grandson, he will enjoy the story too.

My son is 2 years old and he loves this book. He chooses this book as his first story every night. I read the story to him and let him tell me the name of the animal and the sound it makes. He loves naming the animals and saying the sounds each animal makes. I say duck rode son answers cow. Then I continue the story. Then I say the cow said? son answers moooo. The colors are bright and vivid. The animals are large and life like.

This is a great story about a duck who tries something that ducks don't normally do... ride bikes. Delightful illustrations and wonderfully animated characters are brought together in this book to create a winning children's story. 'Duck' has held the attention of my grandson since before he was a year old, quite a feat!

My daughter brought this book home from the library and we read it FIVE TIMES IN A ROW!!! We all loved it. She brings it home every few weeks and we all sit together and take turns with the animals. I highly recommend this book to any child no matter what your age! ;)

My 2 year old adores this book and I like it so much that I don't even mind reading it to him over and over again. The illustrations are as entertaining as the story. We've been monopolizing our library's copy, and Santa will definitely be leaving Duck on a Bike under the tree this Christmas!

This book is an enjoyable addition to our growing David Shannon collection. The illustrations are fun and the story is cute. Our four year old boys especially liked imagining what the duck will do next when seeing the illustration on the last page.
