Is your child obsessed with racing, motorbiking, and learning about cars? DK Adventures: Race to the Finish is the perfect book for children interested in racing and cars because it combines facts and pictures of cars that appeal to visual learners, but it also has a story that will interest any child. With a combination that appeals to both avid and reluctant readers, DK Adventures: Race to the Finish teaches children about cars and science. And since it's not a textbook, kids may not realize they're learning at all!

In DK Adventures: Race to the Finish, we follow five racing teams as they prepare and build their cars and bikes for the 50th Annual Creek Point Crazy Races. Entries include the gas-guzzling V12 rally car, the new prototype dual fuel hybrid car, a modified "dualie" motorbike, the eco-friendly alternative powered-car and the fuel-cell hydrogen car. Find out about the advantages and disadvantages of the different engines, learn how they work, and uncover the possibilities for cool cars and bikes of the future. Of course, kids will also be fascinated by the story and by guessing who'll win the race!

DK Adventures is a book series that reluctant readers can enjoy as much as bookworms do! This series combines captivating, fictional stories with nonfiction facts to encourage learning and engagement in your child. The stories keep children interested, and the facts teach critical skills and knowledge — the fiction and nonfiction elements work together to keep each child's interest high, to build knowledge, and to enrich the narrative reading experience with fascinating background information. These books are filled with information, but the stories make them incredibly readable. DK Adventures are available in a range of kid-friendly topics, including dinosaurs, cars, and the human body, and each book supports Common Core State Standards and literacy skills.
