This interesting book offers children a unique opportunity to learn more about the person behind the household name ‘Honda.’ Along the way, teachers and parents can use examples from Soichiro Honda’s story to reinforce some useful lessons in economics related to entrepreneurship, innovation, and competition. Honda: The Boy Who Dreamed of Cars will appeal to readers who enjoy carefully-illustrated picture books that feature informative biographies of people we otherwise may not know much about.
