Wild Blue by Dashka Slater and Laura Hughes

Have you ever been on a wild ride?

The Picture Book of the Week is Wild Blue, written by Dashiki Slater and illustrated by Laura Hughes.

About the Book:

Wild Blue is about a girl who goes from training wheels to a big girl bike, but it’s really about a girl finding confidence, strength, and power. In it, the dad tells the girl that she has outgrown her small pink bike and it is time for a bigger one. The girl tries to ride the big blue bike, but she keeps falling off. Will she ever be able to ride her wild blue bike into the sunset?
