The Little Crooked Bookshelf

Race Car Count 
by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, illustrated by Michael Slack

This week's pick is from cottager Kara LaReau.

What it's all about
Red light, yellow light, green light, GO! Start your engines — as ten race cars speed around the track, every moment counts, literally!

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf…
We're a family of car fans (if you didn't already know), and my little one is all about spelling and counting these days. So this racy little number by Rebecca Kai Dotlich and Michael Slack is currently #1 in our house!

Our favorite lines…
"Race car 10 has finished last. Still, his wheels were lightning fast."

Our favorite illustration…

Why kids will love it…
With a cast of cool crazy characters (or would those be CAR-acters?) by Michael Stack and a rollicking text from Rebecca Kai Dotlich, this story is sure to get little engines revving.

Why grown-ups will love it…
It's a wheely fun read-aloud with lots of visual interest, without focusing too much on winning and losing. GO-GO-GO check it out!
