Hi everyone,

DD and I have the iBert bicycle seat (http://www.ibertinc.com/) and we had a fun time bicycling last summer. As we get ready for this summer, I'd love to read her some books that feature toddlers riding on the back (or front) of their parent's bicycles. I did a google search and an Amazon search, but all the books I could find feature older children learning how to ride a bike, as opposed to riding along on their parents bikes. Any suggestions welcome! (And the entire book doesn't need to be about bicycling; any book that features a bicycling parent and toddler is great! Basically these types of images appearing in books:

We have one called Daddy's Little Girl, in which the protagonist rides to school on her dad's bike. The plot does focus on her then learning to ride her own bike, but when she does, the younger sibling gets to use the bicycle seat.

Have you seen Saturday with Mez? You can view the book online here: http://www.northcountrynotes.org/lau...Mez/index.html

A quote from the book is "This family has no car. They ride bicycles everywhere." There are a few bicycle pics as well as nursing toddler pics. Pretty cool.

Hope you find what you are looking for!
