Reviews

Young learners who love hearing about superfast vehicles will adore this informative series. The books do an excellent job sharing the science of racing cars, like: dragsters produce flames in their wake thanks to the combusting nitromethane and methanol fuel, Formula One cars are designed with aerodynamic bodies to improve tire traction and reduce drag, and extra suspension in off-road and rally cars helps drivers keep control over bumpy terrain. Some of the vehicles are even made with lightweight carbon fiber bodies! Each book ends with a profile of a racing all-star, like Antron Brown, the first African American to win the National Hot Rod Association Top Fuel World Championship, and Mia Chapman, a seven-time kart racing champion. Unique glossary terms are ­defined on the pages of first mention. Filled with colorful photos and tons of facts, they are accessible and exciting. VERDICT ­Attractive first purchases.
