I Did It!

Written and illustrated by Michael Emberley
Holiday House, 2022 | HC ISBN: 9780823446513 | 40 pages

Simple text that new readers can read by themselves, along with delightful pictures in a comic format, show a little creature trying and trying again as they learn to ride a bicycle.  All their friends help with supportive words of encouragement. “You did it!” their friends exclaim.

Comics-lovers can now share the fun with their kids, students, siblings, and younger friends who are learning to read!


★ “[An] unpanelled graphic story ... Pairing animated, thoughtful illustrations and simple text with a story focused on determination, this book is a perfect pick for new readers, both nervous and brave.” School Library Journal, Starred Review

★ “This title will be cherished by librarians, educators, and caregivers for its simple yet direct message but also by young readers, who will see themselves reflected in the main character. When it comes to excellent books, Emberley does it! Joyfully encouraging—just what uncertain little ones need as they make their first forays into independence.” Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“The all-dialogue text, with just a handful of words in total, is easy to read and will give new readers, too, the self-assurance finally enjoyed by our main character. Lively cartoony illustrations with plenty of white space provide humor and relatability.” The Horn Book
