Caldecott Honor winner David Shannon applies his wonderful off-beat humor to the story of a duck who decides to try riding a bike—and loves it! Another young, funny book perfect for reading aloud.

One day down on the farm, Duck got a wild idea. “I bet I could ride a bike,” he thought. He waddled over to where the boy parked his bike, climbed on, and began to ride. At first he rode slowly and he wobbled a lot, but it was fun! Duck rode past Cow and waved to her. “Hello, Cow!” said Duck. “Moo,” said Cow. But what she thought was, “A duck on a bike? That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever seen!”

And so Duck rides past sheep, horse, and all the other barnyard animals. Suddenly, a group of kids ride by on their bikes and run into the farmhouse, leaving the bikes outside. Now all the animals can ride bikes, just like Duck!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Leah | 2/16/2014

    " This is a colorful and funny story of a duck on a bike, and, eventually, all the farmyard animals on two wheels. Lots of great opportunities for children to chime in with animal sounds. Little long for storytime, so you might have to skip an animal or two like I did. Overall: solid storytime pick! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Samantha | 2/13/2014

    " My favorite part of this book was all the big colorful pictures. I also likes how it introduces animals to children and what sounds they make. Definitely a book about adventure and trying something new. The story was repetitive and age appropriate for younger kids learning to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Maren Williams | 2/2/2014

    " This is a fun book for kids as it follows the story of a duck on a farm who is being an individual and having fun. The illustrations are very well done and you are able to see the different characteristics of each of the different animals. "
