If you liked the Disney movie Cars, you’ll love the book Car Show Countdown. Outstanding illustrations made me want to open and read the book, while the rhyming story kept me interested. Each vehicle has a name and a number, which should help children learning to count or read. Children love books that rhyme. With just a few rhyming lines per page, author Karen J. Moore manages to name the car and identify one of its outstanding features. Parents and children will enjoy reading the story and looking at the emotional expressions of the car drawings. I believe school libraries will also benefit from this book since it is an interesting story with outstanding artwork and added educational value.
I think the illustrations in Car Show Countdown will attract children’s attention and draw children into the book. Parents will like the interesting story and its subtle educational value of counting and learning new words. Some parents may even recognize some of the classic cars in the artwork. Illustrator Jack Foster has provided beautiful, full-color images for each car with a fun, but accurate rendering. The facial expressions on each vehicle are fun to look at—and some are hilarious. Bright and vibrant colors and cartoon eyes bring each automobile to life. Author Karen J. Moore provides a wonderful twist at the very end of the tale that will leave readers wondering about the size of the classic cars. Hang on tight—you’re about to take part in a competition with 10 classic cars.
