The boy who dreamed of cars


Honda: the boy who dreamed of cars by Mark Weston is the inspiring true story of Soichiro Honda who started the Honda Motor Company.  When he was seven years old, Honda saw a car for the first time.  He determined then that he would learn how cars worked and would build them in the future.  His lifelong perseverance and commitment to making his dream come true is a great example for all of us.

We even watched a Honda advertisement in some of the library classes!  IST is not promoting the purchase of Honda products, but this commercial does help us understand how one man’s determination and dream affected so many of the things we take for granted today:

The IST elementary library has many other excellent biographies and autobiographies.  Please see me if you need some ideas for what to read next.
