I’m at the age where, even though I’m not planning on having children, many people I know do – and I’m always on the lookout for cute racecar-themed gifts to celebrate a new family’s addition. pellets. Andy Amendola’s Book about the red racer published two new books that are now my favorites: ABC of Racing: My First Guide to Formula 1 Racing and Introduction to Racing: A Guide to Formula 1 Racingillustrated by Wei Ren.
These books have been around my general social media realm for a while, so I finally took the plunge and ordered my own copies.
Amendola discovers her love for Formula 1 through By Netflix Drive to survive, and as a father, he wants to introduce his kids to the sport. Thus, both books highlight key terms and STEM concepts as they apply to racing, with About Racing Cars serves as a slightly more advanced sequel to ABC of Racing. Even better: ABC of Racing Also available in Spanish.
ABC of Racing provides short descriptions of key Formula 1 terms, such as karts or understeer, to help children grasp the concept being described. Coupled with Ren’s beautiful illustrations, this is a fairly easy read for kids interested in racing, something you can easily use to help young readers expand their vocabulary. and understand complex racing terms like aerodynamics.
All About Race Cars is a little more advanced. I’d offer this book to a kid who already has a strong vocabulary and who’s interested in some of the more challenging racing terms. Here, Amendola dives into everything from safety equipment like HANS devices and halos to the different tire compounds available during a race weekend.
If you’re looking to impress with a kid’s gift, look no further. Both books are available at Red racer books for under $20.
