"I loved the lyrical but simple language, which was well-matched to the elegant and representational line drawings, filled with watercolor. This was a delightful celebration of the power and wonder of bikes and the independence they bring, whether they're used to run errands, meet new friends, deliver packages (here, an elephant!), or fulfill dreams. " - Youth Services Book Review

(...) The Massachusetts Review does not usually publish children's literature. However, The New Bicycle by Darcy Day Zoells reminds us that we share a common humanity. This gentle and beautiful children's book is not only for the young; it alights a smile in all. Like so many before, the child traveller does not cease from exploration. And at the end of all of her exploring, she returns home, and knows it anew. Is there a dream bigger than returning home? With a knowledge that we are also all the same? As the world splinters and divides, perhaps we need to remember what we share, and that beauty brings us closer to the just--whether it be encountering a flower, a late Beethoven quartet, a Raga Darbari, or a children's book. - Tanya Jayani Fernando; The Massachusetts Review

"A delightful blend of whimsy and realism that captures the joy of new bikes,
imagination--and where both can take you." -- Shelle Rosenfeld; Booklist Review
