Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Arthur's frisky younger sister passes her tricycle down to baby Kate and hops on a new pink two-wheeler in this light, rather slight caper featuring Brown's cheerful aardvark family (see above). The youngster immediately takes a tumble, and Arthur decides to give her a lesson in bicycle riding and safety. After learning how to ride in traffic, use hand signals and avoid unfriendly dogs, the overconfident D.W. insists that her training wheels be removed. Dad complies with her wishes but quickly recants, and D.W. gets the auxiliary wheels back until she further hones her riding skills. Alas, in a characteristically wry Brown conclusion, it's Dad who has the final biking mishap, and D.W. generously offers him the use of her training wheels. Though not the most memorable of the Arthur adventures, this is good fun--with some worthwhile tips for beginning cyclers. Brown's art is as spunky as ever--especially endearing are the little aardvark ears peeking up through bicycle helmets. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Arthur's little sister D.W. has gotten a two-wheeler and thinks she's ready for the Tour-de-France. However, training wheels are in order at least until she learns where the brakes are. Arthur takes her out and teaches her the basics plus some safety rules, and soon the training wheels are ready to come off. The illustrations bring out D.W.'s irrepressible determination to triumph. Her facial expressions, body language, and conversation combine to produce a lovable personality in contrast to her brother's rather droll countenance. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are vibrant and fresh. The cast of characters convey information with humor and produce a delightful story.

"The Training Wheels Have to Go Back On, Said Father... You're Almost Ready" Dec 17 2006
By George Buttner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In "D.W. Rides Again!," D.W. graduates from her tricycle and begins riding an actual bicycle. D.W. has a lot to learn, but fortunately her big brother Arthur is willing to teach her. He tells her about safety rules, how to operate the bike and more. And D.W. practices. She starts learning tricks and becomes really good at it. But then --- D.W. wants to remove her training wheels. What will happen?

Another charming story featuring Arthur's sister D.W. D.W. shows how to be "can-do" and work to learn to be good at something. The illustrations nicely convey the action and have a sweetness to them as well.
