Speedboat Racers

If you're vacationing or living near the water, the chances are strong that you're hearing the sounds of speedboats. The racing side of speedboating adds excitement and challenge to this fun summer activity. Among the few speedboating books with age-appropriate text for children and young adults is Enslow Publishers' Speedboat Racers. Author Michael Hauenstein's easy-to-read text delivers a pleasant overview of  this warm-weather activity. The 48-page work's contemporary design and excellent illustrations invite readers to explore this popular topic. It's a strong choice for reluctant readers and for kids with a desire to know more about boats and racing.

Speedboat Racers, part of Enslow's five-book "Kid Racers" series, is available in paperback for $7.95. A library-bound edition, suitable for school libraries and public libraries, is also available.

Speedboat Racers: Kid Racers

Speedboat racing is a national sport and all ages of kids and adults can race. Learn about sleek hydroplanes, powerful runabouts, and the stars in the sport. By the early 1900s, powerboat racing had official rules. It became a national sport. You can race a powerboat as soon as you are nine years old. It doesn’t matter if you’re a boy or a girl, tall or short, big or small. Successful boat racers come in all shapes and sizes. Author: Michael Hauenstein.
