Go Fly a Bike! The Ultimate Book of Bicycle Fun, Freedom, and Science

By: Bill Haduch 

A funny and comprehensive guide, Go fly a Bike! is crammed with everything a rider wants to know about his or her favorite sport.

A bicycle is the kids vehicle-from about age six until they drive cars, kids play, socialize, compete, explore, sense freedom, and ride to school on bikes.  This is the book for them-and there's nothing like it available.  From how bikes work to the coolest BMX stunts, from crucial safety information to a step-by-step guide for planning the perfect bike hike, this expertly organized book has something for all readers, whether their interest lies in history, trivia, physics, extreme sports, or just a quick spin around the block.

Traveling Green (Going Green)

By: Jacqueline A. Ball

Up-to-date statistics drive the urgent arguments in this lively photo-essay in the Going Green series. Bright, full-color pictures support the facts and the call to readers to walk, cycle, and use public transport to cut down on greenhouse gases, which can increase global warming. New York City gets praise for its highly accessible subway system that serves a huge population, and photos show the packed trains with a lively mix of passengers. Other spreads show soldiers driving an electric car around an army base in Germany. Planes may be the fastest type of transportation, but they are also the worst for the environment (“quick and dirty”). Today’s young conservationists will welcome the statistics, images, and examples of pollution and its solutions, which many adults have ignored for too long. Grades 2-5. --Hazel Rochman
