Nervous mums and dads, please note that the little girl in this book, Tahlia, always wears a helmet when she rides her motorbike! Nervous little kids, settle in and enjoy the story as Tahlia shows you that you can learn to do anything you set your mind to.

Tahlia, You Can Do It! is the story of a little girl who has a special bond with her grandfather, Poppy. Poppy loves motorbikes and believes everyone should learn to ride, including Tahlia.

“I’m only three Poppy. Little girls don’t ride motorbikes.”

“Tahlia, you can do it!”

So Poppy takes Tahlia riding on his motorbike up and down the driveway, round and round the backyard, so many times that she loses count until she isn’t scared any more. It’s exciting. It’s fun. Tahlia could do it!

Written by Melbourne author Christine Lister and beautifully illustrated by Jodi Blokkeerus, Tahlia, You Can Do It! is the perfect story for demonstrating how taking risks, thinking positively and persevering goes a long way.

Tahlia, You Can Do It! is $24.99 and is available from Readings.
