RATED BY THE KIDS: goodgood 2 very enthusiastic thumbs up (because we only have 2 thumbs) 🙂


The Bike Lesson is a perfect story for beginning readers, who will delight in spotting the dangers of the road before Father Bear does. And beginning bicyclists will want to find out whether Small Bear will get a chance to read his new bike! The Berenstain Bears are back with another hair-brained adventure, this time when Father Bear tries to teach Small Bear how to ride a bicycle. It looks like Father Bear might need to take note of the lessons himself! Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be ‘read’ even by the non-reading child.


This book is a childhood favourite of mine and now my daughter constantly asks me to read this book and to “use funny voices” for the Father and Son.

Thanks to Father Bear’s antics my children now know what not to do when it comes to riding a bike. It’s not only an entertaining read for the little ones but it’s also a life lesson in bike safety.

So if you’re looking for a funny story to get your kids interested in books, regardless if they can read or not give this one a try.
