Week 27: Are Looks Really Important? By Benny

I never knew how to ride a bike. It was time to learn. I went to the bike shop with my mom, hoping to get a fast, blue bike. The manager told us that there was only one bike left. An old, red bike.

“Was this really the only bike left?” I asked.

“I’m afraid so,” the manager replied.

It was better than nothing. I returned home with my new bike and headed outside to learn how to cycle. Soon, I realized the bike was actually as good as any other bike. I raced my friends and beat them all the time. The bike was great and I discovered that looks do not matter after all.

  1. Ah Benny, I suppose that’s a lesson in being thankful for what we have, rather than being envious of other things. I liked your brief, short sentenced introduction which gets right to the point, letting the reader know instantly what the story is about. You’ve also done a good job of itting a life lesson into just a hundred words. I wonder if it might also have been powerful to describe this older bike in a little more detail, which would then emphasise your point even more that looks don’t necessarily matter.
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.

  2. Well done Benny. You’ve given us great advice there – Never judge a book by its cover.
    Another great story.

    Hoping you and your family are keeping well.
