With these questions, our hero's imagination is off and running. Is the human race an obstacle course? Is it a spirit? Does he get his own lane? Does he get his own coach?
Written with Jamie Lee Curtis's humor and heart, Is There Really a Human Race? Is all about relishing the journey and making good choices along the way - because how we live and how we love is how we learn to make the world a better place, one small step at a time.

"Sound philosophy ingeniously expressed in an amusing and insightful way that both youngsters can understand and we older folk should heed." (Kirkus Reviews)
I like science fiction and fantasy. I get regular recommendations from a librarian. I have converted all my "reading" almost exclusively to audio-books because of my vision. I am very particular about the sound of the reader/actor's voice. My profession is quality analyst; make of that whatever you wish, but the fact remains, I know of that which I speak.
Although this piece is really mostly questions, I think it will appeal to any child exploring idiomatic speech. The rhythm and meter lends itself to further creative thinking and expression by inducing a participatory response - the child tries to mimic the scheme. Ms. Curtis has a lovely cheerful lilt to her voice.
