It’s time for this year’s Going Places contest! Finally. Time to build a go-cart, race it—and win. Each kid grabs an identical kit, and scrambles to build.

Everyone but Maya. She sure doesn’t seem to be in a hurry...and that sure doesn’t look like anybody else’s go-cart!

This story is a fine example of following your own ideas and dreams, and not having to be just like everybody else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for kids! I book this for my 5 year old nephew and he loved it. I think the concept would be too much for a younger child, and my nephew will only grow to love it more and he understands the "lesson".
