Book Of The Month

  • .

     November, 2018

     Dear Forest Lake Family,

     The book that I have chosen as our November book of the month is titled A Bike Like Sergio’s by Maribeth Boelts.   The book is illustrated by Noah Z. Jones.  This is a warm book about generosity and trying to do what is right, something that is not always easy to do.

     “Ruben feels like he’s the only kid without a bike.  He wishes he could get a bike like his friend Sergio’s, but wishes won’t make money appear.  One day, when Ruben sees a dollar bill fall out of someone’s purse, he picks it up and puts it in his pocket – it’s only a dollar.  But when he gets home, Ruben discovers that it’s actually a hundred-dollar bill, more than enough for the bike he’s been hoping for. “

     The choices Sergio makes from this point in the book on give you some insight on the type of person he truly is.  It is expected that Sergio will dream of all he can do with that money, but what he ends up doing with it is worth more than anything money can buy.  As we enter the holiday season, it is often that this time of year we start thinking about gratitude and generosity.  This book is one which teaches us that there is more to life that what money can buy and sometimes doing what is right is far more valuable than doing what is easy.   Be grateful for what we have, for those who love us, and always make sure to do what’s right.  What a great message to share!

     Happy Reading!
