Ben Rides on Review   (2014-01-29)
Illustrations and a subject that many kids can identify with, bullying, set the stage for an enjoyable book. Ben rides his most treasured possession, a new bike, to school, only to have it taken by the school bully. Later, when Ben is walking home, he comes across not only the now destroyed bike, but also the bully and must make the decision whether to help him or not. A twist in the plot makes you wonder what would happen, and for a brief moment, I expected an unhappy ending. All works out in the end, though. Great for talking about decisions, responsibility, and predictions.
