With determination and some help from friends, a little creature learns to ride a bike.


From the 2023 Geisel press release:

This early reader features a main character who tries a variety of playtime activities with the encouragement of supportive, toy-like friends. Although its early attempts result in failure, a persistent growth mindset culminates in the protagonist’s triumph and a happy parade on the final pages.

Set against white backdrops, these creatures express an array of emotions, which are conveyed through colorful artwork enhanced by soft textures, patterns, and shadowing. Conveyed through dialogue bubble, the rhythmic, repetitional text is composed of creative variations on the familiar phrase of accomplishment, “I did it.”
