BOOK NAME: Julian’s Glorious Summer
AUTHOR: Ann Cameron
This book is about two friends, Julian and Gloria. I think they are both 7 years old. It takes place in the summer, which is a really good time to read about when it’s cold outside.
In the book, Gloria gets a new bike and learns how to do tricks. Julian wants to show off and do cool stuff too, but he doesn’t have a bike and he doesn’t know how to ride one. So he looks for jobs and other things to do during the summer while telling everyone he doesn’t like bikes. He is almost mad when his dad finally gets him a bike and Julian then tells his mom that he doesn’t like bikes because he’s afraid of falling down. But Gloria helped teach him how to ride his bike and to do tricks so they both have fun in the end. Julian just had to try to learn.
I liked this book because it’s about riding bikes, which is something I like to do. It can be hard to learn how to ride a bike for the first time without training wheels. This book also is about having fun in the summer, which is also something I like.
