Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 3^-6. Here's a book about numbers that has a little extra get-up-and-go. Race cars numbered from 1 to 20 battle it out while a gallery of animal spectators cheers: "1 is at the starting gate. / 2 and 3 can hardly wait." Cars gleam in bright, almost iridescent colors as they jockey for position, each one clearly numbered so children can follow a favorite as they learn to differentiate between the numerals. The rhyming text has a lively beat, and the artwork, which almost seems to zoom off the page, has lots of comical details that little ones will like. An appealing tool for number recognition; use it in conjunction with some of Stuart Murphy's Math Start books, which give children a more complete idea of what numbers mean and how they work for us. Stephanie Zvirin

From Kirkus Reviews

Wide-eyed and grinning, 20 cars line up for a race-and they're off, burning rubber, swerving into walls and each other, shedding parts, crawling off the track with tongues hanging out. ``Which car's first across the line?/Hurrah! It's driver number 9!'' In illustrations created first on a computer, Murphy puts a wonderful range of expressions and vivid jellybean colors on his autos, but leaves crews, spectators, and vehicles floating just above the ground, and despite tidy sets of tire tracks and boldface ``sound effects,'' the cars have little sense of motion. While the book has some value for preschoolers as practice in number recognition, the static illustrations put it outside a winner's circle that would include Thacher Hurd's Zoom City (p. 197), Tres Seymour's Smash-Up Crash-Up Derby (1995), or Donald Crews's Bicycle Race (1985).

I got this for my 22 month old son after checking it out of the library. He isn't recognizing numbers yet but likes to count and loves cars and trucks. I have looked for books that go beyond 10 for my 3 year old and haven't really found any. Right now my son just loves the story but when he's ready I'll use it for counting past 10 and recognizing numbers to 20. Great book.

I took my 3 year old to a raceway where he enjoyed watching his first car race. Soon afterwards he picked out this book, and asks me to read it to him every night. It's just like being at the race track (except since it's a kid's book, it downplays the accidents and crashes). A great book for kids, and has colorful cartoon pictures of multi-colored racecars. Also helpful in teaching how to count.
