Synopsis

Bicycles by Kate Petty, Oxfam

There are all sorts of bicycles in the world. Some people use them to get to school. Others use them to play with their friends. Here are pictures of people from all around the world using bicycles in lots of different ways. With stunning photographs from Vietnam, Kenya and many more countries, this series is perfect to share with the youngest child. Published in association with Oxfam this series aims to draw parallels between children from many different cultures.

Reviews

This is an excellent way for children to learn about life in other countries. The use of a bicycle as a familiar object gives them something to relate to. There is very little text on each page, but enough going on in each photograph to lead to discussion. Bicycles is an exceptional book for sharing either one to one or with a group. || A set of excellent, vibrantly colourful photos from countries far and wide with captions and speech bubbles, a browsing book and none the worse for that

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
