E.J.Timms, author of The Big Red Bike, visits with Mr. Gowans' 4th Grade class after they had finished reading his book. Timms even brought the actual Schwinn Mark II Phantom bicycle from his award winning book. The book, The Big Red Bike, is a warm recollection of being nine years old in a time when bike-riding, bottle-collecting, and jumping into ponds were enjoyed all summer with one’s best friends. Timms book has won the IPPY Book of the Year Award as well as the Moonbeem Childrens Award.
