We purchased my 6 year old his first bicycle and with it we gave him a copy of Mike and The Bike. It was the perfect match! For the first several weeks I had to read Mike and The Bike with him every night and now months later he still drags it out at least 3 or 4 times a week. The story is simple and is written in a sing-song rhyme which is fun to read, the art is done in a cool retro style and the accompanying audio CD is awesome! The music is great and very fun (and listenable) for the entire family. Mike and The Bike is perfect for any child who is entering into the world of bikes. We are so happy that Lance Armstrong does the foreword and my son screams "Go Lance!" whenever he hears his voice on the CD.
