Motivating for my Son July 25 2005
By Derek Star - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've been trying to build my Son's self-esteem - Ethan is seven now and I would like him to feel confident about getting along with his friends in all types of sports as he gets older. We've golfed, played soccer, baseball, tried wake-boarding, snow-boarding and now he's really beginning to enjoy his bicycle.

This year Ethan followed Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France. Midway through the race I purchased Mike and the Bike from Amazon. Ethan loved it!

He was able to imagine himself in Mike's place. The fun graphics and catchy audio CD had him reading and singing everyday. Mike and his Bike, is Ethan's hero now, his training wheels are off, and he is riding strong, just like Lance!

The author did a great job. Lance Armstrong's introduction made Ethan take pride in the book. Ethan got a real kick out of the fact that the same guy, Phil Liggett, who narrated the tour on OLN TV narrates the audio CD which follows the book.

If you are looking for a fun book on the spirit of cycling for younger boys and girls, this book is it.

Wish there was more substance to the story Aug. 12 2005
By S. Fleming - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 6-year-old son who LOVES riding his bike and watched part of the Tour on TV with us this year, but he hasn't been interested in reading it again after the first time.

I think the story is a bit too simple to hold his interest, and I wish it had been developed into a longer story that had more "meat" to it. It seems to me that "Mike and the Bike" is a story more geared for kids in the 3-5 age range. The CD reinforced my "younger kid" impression because the songs are sung by a child rather than an adult.

4 year old loves this book and his bike Oct. 22 2005
By J. M. Mckay - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Our 4 year old got this book and LOVES it! Our son is almost as big as a cycling fan as his dad, so it is quite exciting for him. Now when he rides he often quotes sections of the book. Warning for parents, the CD can get a little annoying after you listen to it over and over and over. I really like having the story read on the CD. I wish more books were available on CD. This book and CD have provided a lot of entertainment for our son.

An entertaining picutrebook excellent for motivating young people to learn how to ride a two-wheeler March 12 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Written by Grammy Award-winning guitarist, songwriter, and experienced cyclist, Mike and the Bike is a combination picturebook and audio CD with original music. Mike and the Bike tells about an ordinary boy who loves to cycle - while wearing a bicycle helmet, of course! The vivid color illustrations add a touch of surrealism to his cycling adventures, and the audio CD allows the reader to read or listen along to Mike's crazy adventures. An entertaining picutrebook excellent for motivating young people to learn how to ride a two-wheeler.

Great book with a simple message Jan. 19 2006
By David Lively - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Both my 5.5 year old and my 2.5 year old love this little book (the 5.5 year old has it pretty much memorized). The CD is a nice addition (The author is formerly of The Wallflowers, so knows music) and his daughter is the child's voice in many of the songs.

Warning about the Phil Liggett narration - it is EXTREMELY slowly read. None of the usual enthusiasm and spirit that us cycling fans normally associate with Phil, he comes across as much more monotone and dry.
