REVIEW: Mermaids Can Ride Bicycles by Delphina Henley & Deedle Miyares



Mermaids Can Ride Bicycles
Delphina Henley & Deedle Miyares


Meet Mer, a seven year old mermaid who never gives up. When she finds a bicycle, everyone tells her mermaids can't ride bicycles, only humans can. She sets out to prove mermaids CAN ride bicycles. Second Grade Reading Level Chapter Book.







I absolutely loved this story. It's a great reminder, that no matter who you are or old you are, you can do anything that you put your heart into. It's also a great learning tool too. The story-line was awesome and the pictures were drawn magnificently well. They followed right along with the story. I highly recommend this read to all second graders and their parents.


I purchased my copy of this book from the authors at the Once Upon A Book Author Signing in Michigan in August 2016.

REVIEW BY MICAH: Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 by Bill Martin Jr.

Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3

Blurb: 1 told 2 and 2 told 3, "I'll race you to the top of the apple tree." 
One hundred and one numbers climb the apple tree in this bright, rollicking, joyous book for young children. As the numerals pile up and bumblebees threaten, what's the number that saves the day? (Hint: It rhymes with "hero.") Read and count and play and laugh to learn the surprising answer.
