From Life Lessons with Jr. The Super Red Racer is about a young boy name Junior who wants a new bike that he saw on TV, he then develops a plan to start working to make money. The book helps children learn that working and serving others is cool and rewarding. Junior gets a job working for a farmer and learning new skills. I really liked that Junior took on a job that was new to him and learned the benefits of working hard, even when the job is not but not easy and glamorous.
