The Little Pig, the Bicycle, and the Moon

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Orbie. Pig Rosie loves only playing, sleeping, and eating until she sees a "small animal" (a child) on a bicycle and decides she wants to learn how to ride. Rosie does learn, eventually, and pedals off the farm (possibly to the moon). This cutely illustrated and simply paced picture book combines a folkloric feel with a story of determination, making it entertaining as well as useful for aspiring bicyclists.
