In a charming take on a milestone moment, a young girl summons a cowpoke’s courage to tame her intimidating new bicycle.

Kayla loves riding her pink pony, a three-wheeled bike, up and down the street, day after day. But then Daddy announces that it’s time for a big-kid bike, one with just two wheels. At the store, Kayla selects her mount, but when she tries to ride it, she is thrown—again and again. Can she tame this intimidating set of wheels? Or is the new blue bike just too wild?

Join award-winning author Dashka Slater as she reads from her book, Wild Blue, with illustrations by Laura Hughes. This story will delight and reassure readers transitioning from trikes or training wheels and inspire them to manage setbacks with patience and creativity.
