First, Doc and her brother Donny are going to race their cars (one of which is named Ricardo and is supposed to be the fastest), but Donny's car sputters to a stop. Donny gets mad and throws the remote control, and his dad comes in and tells him he needs a nap. Doc decides she's going to find out what's wrong. Then the animal friends are all there, and Stuffy comments on the car. Cut to the car, which is upset that it is being carried. It wants to race across the yard. Doc tells the car it can't. The car doesn't believe her and tries to race but can't. Doc finally gives the car its check up and discovers the car can't give a vroom vroom. Then Hallie is there, and they decide the car is worn out. Doc gives her diagnosis and says it needs its batteries recharged. The dad comes and charges the car. The car is recharged before Donny's friend Luca arrives. They race their cars, and Ricardo wins.
That is the summary of each scene. It seems like a lot goes on for these 24 pages. I end up summarizing each page instead of reading the actual book.
Run-Down Racecar features Ricardo Racecar, the fastest race car in the world! When he suddenly can't finish a race, Donnie has a meltdown. Doc and Dad realize that Ricardo and Donnie both need to recharge their batteries - with a charging station and a nap! The lesson of this book and episode teaches that napping can help when you're out of energy.
The illustrations are great and are true to the characters in the cartoon.
Kids of all ages would enjoy hearing this story. The reading level is probably ages 5-7. My kindergartener is starting to read most of the words in these books.
Highly recommend this and all Doc McStuffins books!
