9781442483194: The Girl and the Bicycle

From the creator of The Boy and the Airplane, a touching wordless picture book about a little girl, a shiny bicycle, and the meaning of persistence—with an unexpected payoff.

A little girl sees a shiny new bicycle in the shop window. She hurries home to see if she has enough money in her piggy bank, but when she comes up short, she knocks on the doors of her neighbors, hoping to do their yardwork. They all turn her away except for a kindly old woman.

The woman and the girl work through the seasons, side by side. They form a tender friendship. When the weather warms, the girl finally has enough money for the bicycle. She runs back to the store, but the bicycle is gone! What happens next shows the reward of hard work and the true meaning of generosity.

Wordless, timeless, and classic, The Girl and the Bicycle carries a message of selflessness and sweet surprises and makes an ideal gift for graduations and other special occasions.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 3—On a walk with her brother, a girl spies a beautiful bicycle in a store window. Determined to buy it, she counts her pocket money, hunts for loose change, and sets up a lemonade stall. When it's still not enough, she does odd jobs for an older neighbor until, over the course of many months, she save up the needed sum. Rushing to the store, she discovers the bicycle has been sold. Thankfully, two acts of kindness—from her neighbor and from the girl to her brother—give this charming wordless picture book a happy ending. The book has a retro appearance, with its sepia tint and line drawn cartoon characters. Women on the street wear hats and fur coats, and the men wear hats, suits, and ties. The only color in the illustrations is the green bicycle. This simple story has a lot to recommend it and offers much to discuss. Saving pocket money, doing extra chores to earn cash, and delaying gratification are all worthy themes. Discussing the girl's possible emotions, which are not always clear from her facial expressions (she's sometimes drawn without a mouth) and predicting what she will do next are also ways an adult can elicit discussion and build children's comprehension and speaking skills. A good addition for public and school libraries where staff actively promote choices that are not always obvious.—Michelle Anderson, Tauranga City Libraries, New Zealand
