I Stink!
Live through a stinky night in the life of a New York City garbage truck that likes to eat alphabet soup. Follow Mr. Gilly around Trashy Town until his truck is full of glorious garbage. Big diesel engines threaten to run Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel out of business until he finds just the job to prove their worth. An old tricycle is mistaken for trash, but just before being crushed for scrap metal, it magically speeds away on an adventure through town.

Tips to Try 

Get your child excited about riding by planning a special bike trip at a local park or on a scenic bike path. Pack a picnic and your bicycle helmets and you're ready to go!

Make pedal practice fun by setting up a simple obstacle course for your child to drive around. Use small trash cans, lawn chairs and other items found at your house as the obstacles to drive around.

Count the number of "pedals" it takes to get somewhere. Count every time one foot goes down and see how many pedals it takes to get to the mailbox or the end of the driveway.
