Children's LiteratureHigh-interest books are a growing area within school libraries. Often, reluctant or low readers are relegated to reading books written about subjects far below their age level. This problem makes it difficult for a student to maintain an interest in reading. This title in the "Horsepower" series helps close the gap between reading ability and interest. Matt Doeden does an excellent job covering the idea of NASCAR design with few words. The colorful photographs and diagrams help the challenged reader understand the world of stock cars. Information balloons throughout the text emphasize interest points. A section on Internet sites allows readers to follow the subject and expand upon what they learn within the pages of Doeden's book. Along with the other titles in this series, this book is a great addition to any public library's children's area or any school library collection. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 10 to 15.
