School Library Journal,
November 2016

“Bright, bold photographs support the simple text of these high-interest easy readers. Each book focuses on a different type of race, providing a play-by-play from start to finish line.While not particularly informative, the writing is engaging. Colorful backgrounds edged with tire tracks allow readers to focus on the oversize text. While the bulk of the series focuses on well-known topics, Hot Air Balloon Race and Tractor Race showcase two less covered racing sports and offer something new and exciting. For little ones who love truck and car books, this series could easily bridge the gap between picture books and nonfiction. VERDICT Amusing but not essential purchases for easy reader collections. ”—Series Made Simple
