Race Car Drives and What They Do ( Ages 3+ )
By Liesbet Slegers
Publisher ; Clavis Books ( May 2017 )
An ideal reading material for the not very bookish dreamers of the grandstand! The book explains what it needs to become a Formula 1 race car driver. It is loaded with information and color. The informative text would have been a bit more simple to match with the illustrations but could overcome that hurdle with guided reading. It`s clear and vibrant illustrations would make it a favorite book for many little races, who`d go back to this again again.
The book touches all related topics from auto tracks, race cars to Formula drivers through a drivers preparation for the race and finally through a race to the finish. An engaging and satisfying read-aloud for little races to snuggle-up with their dads, obviously there will be a lot of questions to be prepared for and certainly some patience needed. The exciting subject matter of the book is also a great way to teach kids about the rewards of hard work and dedication. Sure to be a hit among the younger readers!
