Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jacquie Skurla
Young children (boys in particular) love reading about vehicles. Almost any kind of vehicle captures their attention. As part of the "All Aboard Reading" beginning readers' series, this book about NASCAR racing is just about perfect. Designed for the independent reader or as a read-aloud for the young race car set, this forty-eight page book is packed with easy-to-follow information concerning the cars, the races, and the drivers. After a short explanation of the rules and tactics of a NASCAR race, the reader is introduced to the action through descriptions of some of the sport's leaders. Superstars in racing Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards share pages with sensational newcomer Kyle Busch on the page as Filipek details their competitions in NASCAR races across the United States. Plenty of full-color photographs enliven each page. A helpful glossary is found at the back of the book. For instance, if a reader is not sure what the acronym NASCAR stands for, the book defines it easily: National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing. Not sure what a stock car is? There is an easy explanation found for that in the glossary, too. Reviewer: Jacquie Skurla
