    1. I used this with a four-year-old boy with autism who is learning to count. He likes race cars, and he liked this book. This was a good pick for him, because there was only one concept presented for every page turn. It was bright and colorful but not overwhelming.


    2. target audience - 1-5 years oldsummary – Race cars and numbers concept book. Counting race cars, there is a crash and pile up of cars and then they sort themselves out and finish all in numerical order. strengths/weaknesses - Race cars have been personified with eyes and personalities. The colors are bold and primary and the cars are racy and fierce. I like the extra thick and slick paper to help in learning to turn pages and learn stop light colors. personal critique - I would definitely buy [...]


    3. Kai Dotlich, Rebecca. Race Car Count, BOARD BOOK. Henry Holt and Company, 2017. $7.99.All types of different race cars count themselves and describe their colors. They each have different personalities and traits. They are counted one through ten.This is a really great board book for both counting and color practice. The pictures are vibrant and they do a good job of showing the speed of the cars. There is a wide variety of cars that lots of different readers will connect with. The human traits [...]


    4. A lively and colorful rhyming counting book. This is a high energy picture book that is a fun introduction to the numbers from one to ten. A solid addition to any preschool math unit. Young car enthusiasts will especially appreciate this book.


    5. 10 race cars on the go with rhyming text and lively illustrations. Love how some of the cars are referred to with female pronouns. Fun last page with tidbits for each car. Thick pages and heavy cover similiar to a board book.



    6. My kids LOVED Race Car Count! It was very reminiscent of Little Blue Truck, but this had a different twist with counting and racing.


    7. Colors and numbers are in the forefront with simple rhyming text. The illustrations contain some fun depth, including a harried pit crew of ducks.


    8. Wonderful counting book for children that like cars. Each car has its own personality. Great rhyming and fun rhythm. Suggested to all who have kids that are learning to count! Picture book


    9. My son keeps asking me to read this to him over and over again. For no other reason -- it is a great book. He loves counting the cars and the red light, yellow light, green light, GO!



    10. I think this would be a good book for younger kids like preschool. I don't think this book would be very useful for an elementary classroom, but it is a good way to teach kids how to count.


    11. Really fun, colorful, variety of numbered race cars speed over and around a race track that combines traditional lanes, roller-coaster-like loops, cross-country desert scenery, and more. Even though number 10 finished last, his smiling face looks like he enjoyed the ride, since "his wheels were lightning fast" and his front bumper face is smiling broadly. My question for the author though, is why do the Colorful race cars line up for a somewhat backwards countdown of red light. yellow light, gre [...]


    12. Rationale for choosing this book:This book is another in the collection of books written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich. In this story, the structure has some valuable lessons being taught. The use of adjectives to describe the cars promotes a lesson on grammar. The clever rhyming words allows students to decode words as they catch on to the pattern of the book.Opening Moves:Directing students’ attention to the structure of the book will allow them to look for such characteristics while reading/listen [...]


    13. My son is absolutely obsessed with cars, so I consider myself to be a car book connoisseur. In the past year, I have read at least fifty books about cars, and Race Car Count stands out from the rest. Upon Henry's request, we've read it about eight times in the last three days. Parents and teachers know that when kids take an interest in a topic, they want to read every book about that interest. I am very pleased that my son wants to read this book over and over again because we can practice coun [...]


    14. This take on a counting book features a variety of ten brightly colored cars ready to race when the green light says “Go.” The competing cars range from a minivan to a wind-up car to Formula One race cars. Each spread has a rhyming couplet that describes the numbered car as it speeds toward the finish line. The race course varies. It looks like a Hot Wheels track at times and at others it looks like an obstacle course in a desert or swamp. Nevertheless, the cars finish in order from one to t [...]


    15. Young car fans will simply insist on having this book read aloud to them over and over, at least until they can read it on their own. Digital artwork collaged in Adobe Photoshop accompanies lively rhyming text that makes readers feel as though they are right on the verge of a race. As the cars line up, one through ten, it's clear that they are all different, not only in their colors but their names and their hobbies and favorite foods. It's a tiny stroke of genius to personalize cars since that' [...]

    17. Full review at: unleashingreaders/?p=7105Whenever I think there cannot be any new interesting ABC and counting books, I am introduced to another book that proves me wrong. Race Car Counts is going to be loved by so many kids and teachers. Not only is it a fun story of racing with vibrant and colorful illustrations, it is a great book to teach counting, colors, personality/character traits, and rhyming. Each car is introduced, and the reader learns their number, their color, and a bit about their [...]


    18. July 2016 - not particularly memorable, but fun and cheerful - great for car fans or to practice counting.August 2016 - the second or third time we read it, I realized that Ben can identify all his numbers by sight, even on the pages when they don't appear in order! He insisted that I stop reading so he could carefully point to the numbers on each car.


    19. Gave this one a solid 4 stars. My little boy would have loved it back in the day. ❤ Not quite a board book, but thicker pages than a picture book make this one easy for chubby hands to touch and turn; bouncy, rollicking rhyme make the read-aloud fun, and the variety of colorful cars (including a couple of unexpecteds) break up some stereotypes. I wish I had a preschooler to share it with!


    20. That's really 3-1/2 stars. Cute counting book with race cars of all different colors. Red light, Yellow Light, Green Light GO! - which car will win the race? Your car lovers will have you read it again and again!


    21. My 4-year-old is obsessed with anything on wheels and numbers, so this was perfect. The illustrations are big and bright, story is simple and engaging and not bad for pre-readers who are starting to get curious about what those jumbles of letters actually say.


    22. What a fun and colorful counting book this is! I love that it has rhyming words too. Can't wait to read this aloud to students and practice pointing out the different numbers and guessing the different rhyming words.


    23. This was such a great book. Lyds loved the cars and we added a lot of car noises while reading it. It was a fun counting book with bright colors.




    24. Love the energy of this book. Great rhythm & rhyme. Dynamic, bold illustrations. Simple text supports early counting, 1-10.


    25. Kinders enjoyed this--twice! Love the ending with descriptions of each of the race cars. Great little counting book!


    26. My new favorite counting/transportation book! Love the rhyme, the illustrations, and the info on the cars in the back! Would be great for toddler or preschool storytime.
