The story of "Car Show Countdown" is a group of ten classic cars in a competition to win the title. Each vehicle has a short write-up about it but doesn't say "is it fast?" to an outsider. Cars include the Corvette, Jeep, T-Bird, Mustang, and Cadillac as some of the contestants. The story is short and sweet in that each explanation is the type of car, and a sentence containing a mini description, then immediately following, is the announcement.
"Winston the Traveling Dog" is a comical story that is appropriate to read at any time.

Reading "Winston the Traveling Dog" was enjoyable for both Lydia and me; this story is great for any aged reader.
