The Great Go-Kart Race by Jonathan Litton


From the publisher, Max and Suzy are entered in the Great Go-kart Race, and all is going well until… they get stuck in the mud! This is the first of several obstacles they must overcome en route and they find that science holds all the answers! Will the dynamic duo find the solutions to all the problems and win the race?

I love books that point out there is science, technology, engineering,art, and math everywhere! In The Great Go-Kart Race we find science in how we solve problems with: being stuck in the mud, using objects in motion pushing and pulling forces; headlight that would not work, using energy sources, electricity, and power; and another, which science method can you use to solve this one?

The book concludes with a resource section that helps readers with what science methods you can use to help solve the problem. In addition, there are activities students can complete to use this method too! I am looking forward to reading more the STEAM Stories series.

STEAM Stories is a series of interactive picture books, each introducing a different STEAM topic: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Join dynamic duo Max and Suzy in these action-packed problem-solving adventures. Each story introduces one of the STEAM topics so children will be introduced to key concepts while enjoying a gripping story.






I am trying out a rating system for my blog! I give this book four coffee cups, Cool Beans.


Reviews PublishedI would like to thank Quarto Publishing Group and Netgalley for providing me with an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I read this book as a part of my #BookaDay Reading Challenge, inspired by Donalyn Miller . My goal is to read at least one children's literature book every weekday and share my thoughts here on my blog. Please feel free to subscribe or connect with me on social media to follow my journey through the books I read. Until next time ...
