Bike Like Sergio's

Finders keepers, right? When Ruben picks up someone’s lost money, he finds out how hard it can be to do the right thing.

Ruben feels like he is the only kid without a bike. His friend Sergio reminds him that his birthday is coming, but Ruben knows that the kinds of birthday gifts he and Sergio receive are not the same. After all, when Ruben’s mom sends him to Sonny’s corner store for groceries, sometimes she doesn’t have enough money for everything on the list. So when Ruben sees a dollar bill fall out of someone’s purse, he picks it up and puts it in his pocket. But when he gets home, he discovers it’s not one dollar or even five or ten—it’s a hundred-dollar bill, more than enough for a new bike just like Sergio’s! But what about the crossed-off groceries? And what about the woman who lost her money? Presenting a relatable story told with subtlety and heart, the creative team behind Those Shoes pairs up again for a satisfying new picture book.

“Boelts lays out Ruben’s ethical dilemma and emotional turmoil without preaching, and his struggle toward the moral choice . . . is both dramatic and genuine.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Este dinero me alcanzaría para una bicicleta como la de Sergio.
Entonces no tendría que ir corriendo a la escuela; iría en bicicleta.

Ruben se siente como si fuera el único niño que no tiene bicicleta. Desearía tener una bicicleta como la de su amigo Sergio, pero sabe que los deseos no se cumplen sin dinero.

Un día, cuando Ruben ve un billete de un dólar que se cae del bolso de una señora, lo recoge y lo guarda en su bolsillo; al fin y al cabo es solo un dólar. Pero cuando llega a su casa, Ruben descubre que en realidad es un billete de cien dólares, suficiente para comprarse la bicicleta que tanto desea.

Con ternura y generosidad, los creadores de Esos zapatos nos ofrecen una historia real y cercana que llegará a los corazones de todos los que han tratado de hacer lo que es correcto.
