Kenseth launches anti-bullying children's book

By

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Championship-winning race car driver Matt Kenseth can now put a children's book on his resume.

Kenseth and his wife Katie released "Race Against Bullying" on Tuesday in conjunction with National Youth Literacy Day. The book written by Gina Gold chronicles the first day of fourth grade for a boy named Matt, whose love of racing is mocked by another boy. Matt gets support from family and friends, including a pretty blonde named Katie.

The Kenseths have three daughters under the age of 5 and picked their first topic, bullying, when the eldest came home from school upset that a friend had been picking on her.

The book is sold for $3 through Dollar General stores and is the first installment of a four-part series for children aged 4 through 8.
