Family biking and front bike seat :Ibert

By Kari Svenneby
I had a lot of fun biking with my first child on a front bike seat. My daughter loved it and I liked having her in front of me. Today, I’m happy to say she is a wonderful biker thanks in no small part, to her Like-A-Bike and perhaps an early introduction to biking. For our family it is a way of living and we will use the bike as an active mode of transportation to get around in the city. We also enjoy biking just for fun.

This was—much to my relief—entirely an in-class assignment. The letter was to be written in English (although it is a French Immersion class), typed into and printed off the school's computers. My daughters talked a little about their topics—one chose all-day kindergarten, the other chose report cards—but I hadn't actually seen the letters until they brought them home, graded, and in need of my signature.
