I checked this book out to read to my nephew. He is really into cars and racing--just a typical little boy. I really thought he would like this little book, but it really didn't capture his attention much at all! I'm not sure why--the text is fun, the pictures are bright and engaging, and it gives kids a chance to pick out the parts that they'd use to make their own race car. Nevertheless, it didn't grab my nephew. My niece, however, thought it was a cute book.
