About the Book
2013 – After a hard workday, motorcycle-riding animals head out on the open road with their young ones!
Bikers are Animals 4 – Working and Riding: A Children’s Book on Motorcycling is released by author Paul Jamiol
BIKERS are ANIMALS 4 - Working and Riding by author/cartoonist Paul Jamiol is the 4th in a series of children's books that bring young readers into a world of motorcycle-riding animals.
In Jamiol’s first two books, he introduced his cartoon menagerie on “cool” motorcycles, showing children and parents that those involved in motorcycling are intelligent and caring. In his 3rd, the characters from BAA1 go on a riding adventure.
Now, Jamiol has created 16 new, young characters who are the sons, daughters, grandkids, nieces, nephews and siblings of his adult characters. These engaging youngsters proudly introduce their adults and explain about their occupations, and then each goes riding with his/her adult, where it’s all about bonding and having fun.
In what has become his trademark style of vivid illustrations and attention to detail, Jamiol creates a stunning world for the young reader, again bringing a positive message along for the ride.
Author Paul Jamiol created the Bikers are Animals series to break down the stereotype that anyone who rides a motorcycle is bad, and also to share, with kids and their adults, his love of being out on the open road on a motorcycle. Jamiol also hopes to inspire a new generation of riders.
Bikers are Animals 4 – Working and Riding is about the adult animals and their young ones. The youngsters introduce their adults and explain where they work and what they do. After the workday is done, each adult takes their young one riding. They ride, bond and just enjoy being with each other. Their love of riding brings them together in a unique way.
Jamiol's newly introduced young characters are proud of their adults and what they do for work. After the workday is done, they would rather ride with their adults than sit in front of a TV or play video games. They explore the open road together, experiencing the sights, sounds and freedom that is lacking in the confines of an automobile.
The young characters (bears, an elephant, a hawk, a squirrel, and a raccoon, to name a few) are male and female, personable and fun, and are as independent as their adults. The young reader will meet them and, through the eyes of these young critters, will see the pride and respect between adult and youngster. This journey into their world will spark the young reader's imagination in a positive way.
The author feels that this is a reading and riding adventure that parents (or grandparents, aunts, uncles...) can share with the children in their lives.
The gentle message in Jamiol’s books has been the importance of caring and respecting one another. That message continues in this book.
