Enzo and the Fourth of July Races
For Enzo, the Fourth of July means three things: fireworks, family, and car races! This year Zoë is finally old enough to compete in the Kids’ Kart Challenge. But when one of the boys at the track says that girls aren’t fast drivers, Zoë gets nervous and backs out of the race. Enzo knows it’s up to him to help his family regain the confidence to compete on the big day.
While looking at the entry list, Zoe hears a boy saying girls aren't as fast as boys. This upsets Zoe and she no longer wants to race, but Enzo doesn't understand why. He knows that Zoe's fast and that she shouldn't be scared because he believes in her. After some pep talks from Johnny Mac and her dad, Zoe decides to "do the talking on the track".
Enzo supports both Zoe and Denny from the sidelines and runs back and forth between races. The support of Enzo was so sweet and it showed unconditional love. I enjoyed watching the race from his viewpoint and how he especially liked when a hot dog was dropped.
Final Verdict: Enzo was the perfect pet and how a dog would probably see the Independence Day Race. With the Fourth of July just around the corner, this would be a good read to share with your child. It also teaches that girls can be just as fast as boys and sometimes even faster.
