Meet Jack.

He's almost six years old. And that's almost grown up.

After all, he can almost ride a big bike just like his older brother. And he almost never gets scared.

This spunky little almost-six-year-old is ready to take on the world.

Richard Torrey's sweetly funny tale is sure to resonate with any child who just can't wait to be big.
