A children's book with a lesson about life Aug 24, 2005
The book by Kristin Armstrong is geared for elementary school aged children. It speaks in clear and simple language about the onset of a serious disease to an athlete of great renown. Her lessons of dealing with adversity and overcoming it and then doing something positive to help others are important for young children and open the door for open, positive discussions with the child.

Great Children's Book May 26, 2001
Just read this book to a 3 1/2 year old boy that I babysit. He loved it and was so interested in the story the entire time. I also enjoyed reading about Lance's life and felt I learned a bit about his struggles. The child I read it too loved the pictures and asked many questions about racing. He was very interested in the motorcylces, Fabio's death, cycling in the rain and Luke at the end. Kristen thank you for writing about your family's life. Hope you write more children's books.
Kids' Books Should Be Like This! Oct 18, 2000
Having read "It's Not About The Bike" while I was having chemo this summer, I was interested to see what this telling would be like. It's a great story, very well told. Some great photos and illustrations. The final photo is a real cracker - it just radiates LIFE! How come when I was a kid there weren't any books like this to make learing to read a real pleasure. Thanks, Lance for the example and the inspiration; and thanks Kristin for a beautifully written book.
