GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: mackenzieblizzard | Feb 16, 2017 |
The bike lesson tells that one day a father bear buy a new bike and he gives many lesson to his son in order the baby bear can ride it safely. I would like to to it in my teaching, because it's really interesting and it can help kids know how to ride bike in a way. This book is good for Kindergarten & 1st grade readers. (4 of 5 Stars)
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Davette rated - it was amazing; I just read this book for the first time yesterday. I found an old copy in almost perfect condition a few months ago. While reading it to my son, I couldn't stop laughing. Wonderful read! (5 of 5 Stars)
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Mark rated-it was amazing; Ap 30, 2015; This was one of my favorite books as a child. I even took it to read to the class in 8th grade as an assignment to read a children's book.
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Mark Siegel rated it - it was amazing. Sometimes, parents of young children at bedtime reading time need a dose of absolute, ridiculous hilarity—for many of us, this is the one that does the trick. It invites an over-the-top goofy reading, which in our family never failed to make 3, 4, 5, and 6 year olds laugh their heads off. The fact we get to laugh at a silly dad's highly ineffectual 'lesson' isn't lost on young readers, of course. (5 of 5 Stars)
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Sarah rated it it was amazing
Shelves: humor-comedy, predictions-foreshadowing, dads, retro-vintage, rhyme, bears-and-other-favorite-things, inferring, emergent-reader, repetition-pattern, 4b-s Papa Bear brings home a bike for Brother Bear, but before Brother Bear can ride the bike, Papa Bear needs to give him some bike lessons. Readers will infer from the pictures that Brother Bear is learning what not to do from Papa Bear's safety lessons. I love that Brother Bear doesn't get angry at his dad or disrespectful toward him. He just learns from his father's mistakes. Very cute. Really silly. The art is an earlier version of the Berenstain Bears published in 1964. The rhyme is consistent and catchy giving the book a great flow. (5 of 5 Stars)
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Stephanie rated it -it was amazing; 2016; Loved this story. It was funny and cute. I really really really loved the end where Papa Bear reminds his son to ride on the right hand side of the road -- I think some adults need to read this so they can be safe when riding their bikes! My daughter read this out loud to us. It was simple enough for her to not get frustrated, but allowed her to practice some words she wasn't completely familiar with. We got this from the library, and I am wondering why we don't have more of these original Berenstain Bears books in our home collection. (5 of 5 Stars)
GOODREADS CUSTOMER REVIEW: Gizelle added it Mar 01, 2015; Papa Bear bought a bike for Small Bear to learn to use. In the attempt, Papa Bear tries to show him lessons of how to ride the bike by having himself ride it. Although some lessons messed up and did not go well, Small Bear understood what NOT to do because of his dad’s mistakes. By the end of the book, Small bear was riding Papa Bear back home with injuries from his bike lessons. This book is a funny and great book to read to a child that is in the process of learning how to ride a bike. Even though it’s not exactly an instructional book on how to ride one, it’s still a good lesson on what not to do. (5 of 5 Stars)
LIBRARY-THING Reviewer: CNKE94297; Jan 29, 2017. The book titled "The Bike Lesson" deals with a father bear teaching his eager and energetic son how to ride a bike. The father and son deal with multiple different situations with the hope of becoming a safe bike rider. This is a very enjoyable book that is humorous, exciting, and also deals with real situations that a young child might deal with when learning to ride a bike. I would recommend this book for kids that are in grades K-2. (5 of 5 Stars)
