Gearheads was a passion project created for my 3 year old son, who is a major car guy. He spends a good part of his day playing with hot wheels, building cars with Lego, and talking about cars. After purchasing a variety of children’s automotive books, I realized that none of them had enough substance to engage him as a true car enthusiast. I wanted him to be entertained and learn about cars at the same time. Just like that, the concept for Gearheads was born.
Gearheads introduces young readers to some of the most iconic cars of all time in a way that is both entertaining and informative. This book was designed as a fun way for car enthusiasts to share their love of cars with their kids. Upon reading the first draft of the book to my son, he was instantly hooked. He asked me to read it to him every night for a month and he quickly memorized every line and rhyme in the book.
To get the book off the ground, I decided to launch Kickstarter campaign which quickly exceeded it’s target and raised over $6,000 to bring the project to life. With the funds from the campaign, we were able to get the book produced and have now made it available to all you car enthusiasts out there!
If you know a little one who shows an interest in cars, get them a copy of Gearheads!
