We checked out this book 3 days ago and already have we read it about 15 times. My kiddo loves cars and racing, and this book does a great job with balancing exciting cool illustrations with what my kid actually wants to hear stories about--racing cars! There's even a lesson worked in, to persevere despite setbacks. I love that this is a book with a female lead character that is also exciting for boys. And after each time we read it, we have to look at all the different cars on the inside of the cover and pick out which one is our favorite. What a fun book. -Melody
