    One thought on “The Best Bike Ride Ever”

    1. I feel like these illustrators were going for the ominous, textured horror of an Edvard Munch painting. They didn't take the pulsating fear and dread as far as My Brave Year of Firsts: Tries, Sighs, and High Fives, which is a shame. A cute story, but eh. Also, Bonnie O'Boy doesn't wear a helmet, which makes her a terrible role model, and an idiot. Buy this title from Powell's Books.

    2. The story demonstrates how kids often feel on a bicycle- invincible. The overall plot seemed a bit shallow, however.

    3. All Bonnie has said for seven days is “I want a bike” so when she finally gets a bike on the eighth day, she just can’t wait to try it out. She can’t even wait to be shown how to use a bike, instead she just hops aboard and pedals off. There’s only one problem – she doesn’t know how to stop. She rode her bike over bridges and on top of elephants, between giraffe legs, to the top of the Statue of Liberty and the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately though, she did stop in the e [...]

    4. Bonnie wants a bike, gets one, and goes on a grand adventure before she learns how to stop.Great imagination, not great personal power - she says "I want a bike" and her parents make it happen for her. Her parents dictate her ability to ride - she doesn't listen to their suggestion for a lesson and then can't teach herself to stop - she needs them to teach her after she scrapes her knee. There's a little jab where the mom says "I love you" rather than "I told you so." - I left that part out for [...]

    5. The perfect book for every first-time bike rider I want a bike! I want a bike! This is all Bonnie says for one full week, until her parents surprise her with . . . a bike! Then: Oh boy! Oh boy! Before she knows it, Bonnie is off on a wobbly course around the backyard that becomes an adventure of epic proportions. She bikes over mountains, under giraffes, up the Statue of Liberty, through the Grand Canyon, and past the Giant Cheese. There's only one thing Bonnie can't do on her bike . . . STOP!!! [...]

    6. Bonnie mounts a relentless verbal campaign to persuade her parents to buy her a bike. When they bow to her wishes, they warn her that she needs to know how to stop before starting to ride. Off she goes, through all sorts of weather, up and down, all across the country--it is a fantasy, after all--but she simply can't stop. Running over her brother's toy dump truck does the trick, stopping her long enough to get instruction in how to use the brakes. As she rides, Bonnie is hatching a plan for som [...]

    7. I can still remember the day when I learned to ride my first bike and this colorful picture book captures that thrill and excitement in a most fantastic way! And is there anyone who hasn't scraped their knee at least once falling off their bike? It happens to Bonnie O'Boy, too. But Bonnie'a adventures, and the the care of her family, shine through in this book. The illustrations convey Bonnie's exuberance so delightfully! And the ending is just perfect!

    8. This book has lovely, colorful, childlike illustrations that held the attention of my storytime audience. The story involves a somewhat spoiled little girl who, upon getting her first bike, takes off on a most adventurous bike ride because she doesn't know how to stop. The story is filled with fun and imagination as our young rider bikes over mountains, over elephants, trough a giraffe and even over the Statue of Liberty.

    9. Bonnie O'Boy said every day, "I want a bike! I want a bike! I want a bike!" When she finally gets one, she goes "all willy-nilly" before anyone can stop her, and the adventure begins. Written with funny prose, the story is not wholly unique, but the presentation is fresh. This would be a good read-aloud for preschoolers to early elementary, and introduces them to some sights around our country.

    10. A beautifully illustrated book. I enjoyed the story of this young girl, barely learning how to ride a bike, through very big leaps and bounds only to fall after a little hill. Too funny. The preschool storytime audience enjoyed the irony of the story also.

    11. Age: 4 - 7 yearsFamiliar Experience: learning to ride a bikeA simple learning experience from an over-anxious girl turns into an unstoppable adventure over and under tall and deep things across the world. A creative twist on a familiar experience.

    12. Bonnie O'Boy wanted a bike so badly that she dreamed and nagged for a week straight for one. Her parents finally caved and purchased a bike. Now the challenging part, trying to give impatient, ready to go Miss O'Boy biking lessons.

    13. I like the imagination aspect in it, where a backyard for a kid can be imagined as the world with some of its amazing features in it (Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty, etc).

    14. A great book about girl excited about riding a bike for the first time. Would make a great read aloud for preK to 2nd grade.
