Reviewed by Mike Kenny
Inspired by Disney/Pixar’s upcoming high-speed installment of the popular Cars franchise, Lead the Way takes young readers along for an inspirational ride with Lightning McQueen as your guide as he makes pitstops on cherished moments gone by. Sharing wonderful life lessons acquired from mentor Doc Hudson about the true meaning of winning, working hard and appreciation for those who helped you along the way, Lead the Way encourages all to believe in the impossible. Introducing Cars 3’s Cruz Ramirez as McQueen’s latest protégé, skilled Pixar artist Garrett Taylor provides colorful illustrations of Radiator Springs’ favorite talking cars as they take to the open track of their adventure-filled lives. Ultimately learning that the friends and memories made along the way in any situation are the greatest rewards, Lead the Way is a charming storybook urging passengers to put their pedal to the metal in following their dreams.
