Author Don M. Winn passes along a valuable message to young readers in ‘Chipper and the Unicycle’
In this sequel to the popular children’s book Chipper the Clown, author Don M. Winn once again follows the adventures of Chipper, a man determined to become a clown. Chipper and the Unicycle is the story of how Chipper, looking for ways to make his clown act exciting and fun again, decides to learn to ride a unicycle – only to discover that it’s not anywhere near as easy as he thought it would be.
Chipper and the Unicycle finds Chipper traveling the world, trying to find new and interesting acts for his clown show. Deciding that he wants to ride a unicycle, Chipper purchases one, thinking, “to learn this new trick should be easy and quick!” Unfortunately for Chipper, he finds that riding the unicycle is difficult, and he falls on his face and into trees for an entire day before becoming frustrated and trying to return the unicycle to the shop where he bought it. The owner of the shop explains to Chipper that learning to ride a unicycle takes time, and he shouldn’t give up on it quite yet. Persevering once again, Chipper takes the time to learn how to ride the tricky unicycle, and before he knows it, he has a brand new act for his show.
Chipper and the Unicycle follows the same line that Chipper the Clown introduced to kids: perseverance is key. Through Chipper, children learn that even though something may be difficult to accomplish, doing so will result in a rewarding sense of accomplishment and pride.
Written in Winn’s brilliant style, Chipper and the Unicycle includes a series of questions at the end of the story designed to initiate discussion between children and adults, both about the story they’ve just read, and about life in general. An interactive story with a valuable message, Chipper and the Unicycle is a classic addition to any library designed for young readers.
