Bug on a Bike
Are we there yet? The Bug on the Bike isn’t saying. He just started riding his bike one day and invited his friends—from the athletic pickle to a surprisingly agile nickel—to follow behind him. Nobody knows where they’re headed, but it’s a long, strange trip everyone is happy to take. Chris Monroe, creator of the Monkey with a Tool Belt series, brings her characteristic love of silly details to this rhyming read-aloud romp.

“This is a fun book….Children will identify with the love of surprises….[T]his book can be a good read-aloud to a few children or for independent reading.”―Library Media Connection
“Monroe’s (Cookie, the Walker) cumulative verse reveals a penchant for nonsense and non sequitur, while her wispy cartoons have a manic energy that matches the text’s quirkiness and showcases amusing transportation-related details…. This boisterous outing works well as both a read-alone for beginning readers and a readaloud for story time.” —Publishers Weekly
“A fun-filled and humorous picture book about friendship and sharing…. Snappy and exuberant, this rhyming picture book is sure to be a hit in a read-aloud.” —Kirkus Reviews
