This story fits in the genre of Contemporary Realistic Fiction and is designed for children ages P and up.

This was a story about a child who lost her bike, gets a new one and learns to ride it.

Her parents decide to give her an early birthday present...a bicycle. Vera does not know how to ride a two-wheeler, but with the help of her parents can do so quite well. One day she decides to ride without her family and sneaks off to ride in the park. She's enjoying herself for quite sometime until she realizes one thing...she doesn't know h ...more
I was so impressed with this line in the book. Vera sees Norman at the park and he taunts her by saying, "I bet you can't ride that bike by yourself." She could have responded with anger and gotten offended, sulked off, etc. But, this is her response: "Yes, I can. But will you hold it so I can start?" Norman responds with: "Sure." I have a lot to learn from Vera!
A good story about learning and can also get you talking about rules for leaving the house without your parents.
Made me want to ride a bike. Way to go Vera!
