Elena Rides / Elena Monta En Bici: A Dual Edition
Beginning riders—and beginning readers of English, Spanish, or both—will be drawn to this buoyant story of a determined elephant and her loyal sidekick, from the award-winning creator of Juana & Lucas.
Elena wants to ride her bike. She steadies, she readies. She wobbles, she bobbles . . . KA-BANG! Learning to ride a bike is hard. But Elena can do it. She just has to try, try again. With this reassuring story of childlike persistence, Juana Medina, creator of the acclaimed Juana & Lucas series, introduces Elena, a plucky elephant, and the little red bird who is Elena’s faithful cheerleader. Simple, energetic text and bold, brilliant artwork convey a relatable tale of the ups and downs of learning something new (not without protest or tears) and the final thrill of mastery that will have children rooting for Elena and ready for her next adventure.
This dual-language edition contains the story in both English and Spanish: read it from the Elena Rides side for the English text, then flip the book over to the Elena monta en bici side to read it in Spanish.
