Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janis Flint-Ferguson
Although labeled juvenile fiction, this book is only for those struggling or emerging readers who need some higher interest content. Each chapter is two sentences about some of the greatest names in auto racing, from Richard Petty to Michael Schumacher to John Force, the names represent the best drivers from all auto racing series. Each two page chapter includes birthdates and a little known fact about the driver or about racing. The color spread includes either a picture of the driver in the car or a photo of the driver. There is a glossary of terms, several additional books, and the FactHound website for readers to find out more information online. The tone is introductory, so young racing fans may already know the names and information, but this nonfiction text may hook those fans learning to read. Reviewer: Janis Flint-Ferguson
