" A little too wordy but I love that crazy cat! " said.

" A girl and a cat make a vehicle to enter a race. When things go wrong they have to improvise. Good for building, persistence and math skills. Probably earlier elementary. I loved that the page numbers are addition problems. " said.

" My children (5 & 4) are both really big fans of Peg + Cat. It's cute and I kind of love the graphing paper with erased math problems for the background. This is one of the Peg + Cat books that I like. I thought it was a clever, creative book and the kids think it is so funny, they loved it. " said.

" The story itself felt too drawn out, but I did like how the page numbers were listed. Instead of the traditional way, the pages numbers were listed like this:Rather than Page 4, it would say "3+1 = 4." Every page number appeared like this. " said.

" "You never solve a problem by giving up. Keep trying your hardest, no matter what." Hot-Buttered Lightning , the race car made out of garbage by Peg and Cat, is entered into a race against the Pirate Mobile, the Pizza Mobile and the Triangle Mobile. Things don't look very good at first, but through persistence and a little luck, Peg and Cat win the race. " said.

" Peg and Cat are entering the neighborhood race with their car made out of garbage. They solve problem after problem using math and critical thinking skills and eventually are able to win the race!Good math concepts and introduction to certain geometrical concepts like cylinders. Recommended for ages 3-6. " said.

"Based on the PBS kids series, Peg & Cat: The Race Car Problem was an entertaining read that our 3-year old granddaughter loves to have read to her. It's the first of a new series.

The premise of the story is that Peg & Cat want to participate in The Tallapegga Twenty event, but to do so they need a race car. With junkyard parts the duo persists until the car is good enough to compete. But, it the car good enough to win against some stiff competition?

The book enforces the message of never giving up, it adds colorful shapes and basic math concepts to the story for added interest and some good vocabulary words for language skill building as well. I thought the story and colorful illustrations were fun as well. I did feel that the book a bit wordy for little ones under the age of 4.
" said.

" Ah, the ol' use-of-parenthesis-to-describe-awkward-plot-progression rut. On top of that grating writing technique, the humor is forced, the geometry integration feels weird, and Peg and Cat win the race because the other competitors get distracted. The inclusion of numbers was well done but I wish there was more about the construction of the race car. Another sacrifice to the television gods. " said.
