The Big Book of Berenstain Bears Beginner Books

The Big Book of Berenstain Bears Beginner Books (wow that's a lot of alliteration!)  contains the stories Bears in the Night, The Bears' Picnic, The Bears' Vacation, The Spooky Old Tree, The Bike Lesson, and The Missing Dinosaur Bone.  I always have my eye out for these at used book sales but so far have only been able to scoop up Bears in the Night.  So I caved in and bought this anthology of early Berenstain Bears stories at Chapters.  I would prefer to buy these books in their vintage form but this is the next best thing - at least we have them now.  I like anthologies for their usefulness but I prefer to have the books separately to be able to enjoy their covers.Speaking of The Bike Lesson - we really need to buckle down and teach our 7 year old to ride without the training wheels this year.  Anyone have any great tips for what worked well for you?  We did a few sessions last summer but didn't get Keira fully ready to ride a 2-wheeler yet.
