Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—This math-filled picture book features Peg and Cat, the two main characters from The Chicken Problem (Random House, 2012), who now have their own show on PBS. Here they create a race car out of junk and enter it in the Tallapegga Twenty, a 20-lap race featuring Peg's neighbors as announcers, referee, and fellow drivers. The book is peppered with basic math concepts of shapes, counting, and simple arithmetic, but the story feels forced around these concepts, resulting in a lack of compelling plot or realistic conflict. The illustrations make clever use of clear shapes, placement of numbers, and graph paper-style backgrounds throughout, quietly reinforcing the simple math that the authors want her readers to learn. VERDICT While this offering is not a first purchase, libraries that collect titles related to children's television programs will surely want this book.—Amy Koester, Learning Experiences Department, Skokie PL

Bought this book for my 2 year old daughter. We are avid readers and as with all young children she loves repetition. I don't hate reading this book to her time and time again. She loves all the characters in the first book and the TV show and we enjoy reading together. She enjoys the story (which is based off of the episode of the same name) and enjoys the vibrant colors and the characters. I highly recommended this book!

I was so excited to find something other than episodes of Peg+Cat! This is one of my 3 year olds favorite shows and it's a bit frustrating that there isn't much other content out there than the shows. Thank you and please keep it coming!!!

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.
