On Amazon this book is recommended for toddlers, but it seems too advanced in my opinion. The illustrations are suitable, but the text is not. However, a five-year-old who is heavily into cars will definitely enjoy this, as it contains a lot of information about training to be a race car driver. It includes the flags that are waved during the race, the job of the mechanics in the pit and the effort required before a race to learn the course and be fully prepared. It even mentions eating well and being physically fit, definitely something to aspire to.
