A Bike Like Sergio's is a beautiful story of a young boy who wants a bicycle, but can't afford one. While at the market one day, a lady drops money. The boy picks up the money thinking it is only one dollar. When he gets home he discovers that it is actually a $100 bill. The main character is scared and confused about what he should do with the money. Does he buy the bike he has been longing for or does he return the money to the lady at the market? This book will spark amazing discussion in your classrooms.
