Recently the authors of The Adventures of Mimi and Moto, The Motorcycle Monkeys sent a copy of their children's book to me as a gift for my grandson Jackson. I can't wait to share it with him!
This adorable children's story about motorcycling monkeys is going to be a great way for me to introduce motorcycles to Jackson. Jackson and my great-niece Sophia, who will be 3 and 4 years old in July, respectively, are both fascinated and frightened by motorcycles. They love to look at them but the loud noise of the engine is too much for them. Short of buying each of them small motorcycles to learn on, I couldn't figure out how to help them relate to my all-time greatest passion.
|Sophia loves the Indian Roadmaster I bought for her a couple of years ago.|
That is, until Mimi and Moto rode into my life.
This furry faced duo tell the story of two road hungry riders making their way through a variety of roads. Unlike most motorcyclists, Mimi and Moto seem to love almost every motorcycle style on the road. From baggers to UJMs, sport bikes to dirt bikes, and even a sidecar, these two have the garage I would love to have! This makes the story more universal and should certainly appeal to the children of most riders.
The illustrations by Estaban Alvarado are bold and vivid, clearly depicting the distinctly different bikes. The pages are thick for little hands to easily turn. As a parent and now grandparent, I remember how important that is for young readers.
|Jackson is one of the happiest people I've ever met. I can't wait to get him riding!|
I'll be visiting my great-niece Sophia on Friday, so this copy will go to her, after we read it together, of course. I'll be ordering a copy from Amazon to be shipped to Jackson's house in Bakersfield. We can read it together as soon as I arrive for a visit in May.
As a Mom Who Rides, I want to see my kids and grandkids find the love of riding. Perhaps this will be a good way to help make that happen.
