No written words but a great book about determination and persistence. Yes, she wants that green bicycle and yes, she will work hard to do it. Walking by a store window, a little girl eyes a green bicycle which she decides she wants. Breaking into her piggy bank at home, it’s decided she does not have enough money to buy it so off she goes to hunt down any stray change that she can find. After selling her toys and some lemonade she still doesn’t have enough, so she’s off to market herself to her neighbors raking their leaves. One neighbor has leaves to rake plus other jobs to keep her earning money for her bike. Arriving at the store with all her hard-earned money, the girl is surprised at she finds. It’s the brown pages of the book with the penciled drawings which is offset with the green bicycle that highlights the importance of the story. I read the book a couple times, one time just watching the facial expressions of the characters, which was interesting.
