K picked this book up from his school library. So K loves anything to do with animals, so when he saw this book he just had to get to find out how fast animals were. Even though it was a great read, I felt more animals could have been involved. As there were only a few. I did enjoy how the author had the dashboard at the bottom that showed the speed of the animal in the picture. A really great book for the kids that would love to learn about a few animals that are fast and what their speed is. Would I read this book again, probably if K brings it home again.
