Publisher's Summary

Is there really a human race?
Is it going on now all over the place?
When did it start?
Who said, "Ready, Set, Go"?
Did it start on my birthday?
I really must know.

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.

It's about time this question was answered . . .

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.
