From the Author
"When I opened my tutoring center I could not find enough interesting reading material for my teenage students, especially the boys. So I started writing short descriptions about car parts aimed at improving reading comprehension. I used simple drawings to help students visualize and associate the car parts with the words. Eventually I had enough material for a complete book and, well, this is it!"
