This week's favorite book in our house: Duck on a Bike by David Shannon. A zany duck makes for a silly story about riding his (borrowed) red bike past horse, cow, pigs, mouse, goat, sheep, cat, dog and chicken.
Shannon serves up a sunny blend of humor and action in this delightful tale of a Duck who spies a red bicycle one day and gets "a wild idea." Sure enough, in no time flat, he's tooling around the farmyard. A succession of his barnyard friends greet him politely enough, but their private responses range from scornful ("That's the silliest thing I've ever seen," from Cow) to boastful ("You're still not as fast as me," from Horse) to wistful ("I wish I could ride a bike just like Duck," from Mouse). --Publishers WeeklyAnimals and their sounds are always a hit with Cole.
