This is one of those stories that cover different characters and events and eventually it comes to light – just how they are a part of each other and interconnect with each other.  Although my children are not physically challenged – I do have several children who have special needs that are quite challenging.  It is nice to see a really fantastic and riveting story about someone who overcomes adversity.  AND each of them love riding a bike – making this story even more personal and meaningful.  I tell them all the time that they can still do whatever they want – the only limits are those they place on themselves and this book is the perfect companion to encourage them to reach for their dreams.
