Great, easy to read book all about bicycles and how they are used and made. Simple illustrations help to learn about bicycles. Good for almost any age and for anyone interested in learning a little about bicycles or transportation.
Ashley Enlow
A perfect book for children interested in bicycles. Also would make for a great starter on a lesson of other means of transportation. A great overview of how they evolved over time, safety rules, and fun facts.

The Bicycle Book is all about the history of Bicycles which was surprisingly interesting. The pictures were fun and colorful and made the text make complete sense when otherwise it may not have. I enjoyed it and felt like I learned a lot from it.
Kids would enjoy learning more about something they use/enjoy often. I would imagine this would make a great resource for a project, it would introduce kids to a more straight forward non-fiction book. It may also be enjoyed by any kid with a curiosity t

I think this is a great informational book for people who are interested in learning everything there is to know about bicycles. Not only does it tell you the different types of bicycles and how they work, but it also gives the history of bicycles, which is what I found interesting. The illustrations were also interesting as well because instead of using photographs of bicycles, it actually used colorful drawings, which I think makes it more engaging for the reader.

I wasn’t very fond of this book because I am not very interested in bicycles. This book gives an enormous amount of information about different types of bicycles and their parts. If someone need to know about bikes or was interested in learning more this book is for them. There are also illustrations pointing out the different parts of the bike visually.

This book is about many different types and styles of bicycles. It talks about when, where and how they were created. It would definitely be fascinating for children, especially those learning to ride a bicycle.
Readers will learn about the history of bicycles including early designs, the parts of modern bicycles, how modern bicycles work, the different types of bicycles, how to care for/properly maintain a bicycle. safety rules, and some notable bike races around the world.

Great illustration, but the book is best for older elementary children interested in bicycles. This book is excellent for teaching and explains the parts of the bike, different types of bikes, and also bicycle safety rules.

A simple, yet informative book about bicycles. It would be a good introduction to nonfiction for young readers.

From I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1944. Even as a little child, I was always busy putting books together. Sometimes I would bind them with yarn to hold the pages together. I've always loved drawing and painting. I was also a very curious child. My parents tell me that I was always asking lots and lots of questions.

Later, I went on to the University of Illinois, where I stu
