Roosevelt Banks, Good-Kid-in-Training

  • Interest Level: Grade 2 - Grade 5   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

When ten-year-old Roosevelt Banks discovers that his two best friends are planning a bike and camping trip, he wants more than anything to go along. There’s just one problem—he doesn’t have a bike. Roosevelt’s parents agree to buy him a bike if he can manage to be good for two whole weeks. How can Roosevelt be good and be the same fun guy his friends want on the camping trip? Trying to be good leads to more trouble than expected—and to the discovery that being a good friend is more important than any bicycle.
