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

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!

The story of a little girl learning how to ride her bike and what happens when she has to stop the bike by herself for the first time. Nothing really unique or special here.

Illustrations are standard.

A good story about learning and can also get you talking about rules for leaving the house without your parents.
