Bedtime Story: The Little Snowplow by Linda Koehler

Synopsis: "Big trucks may brag and roar, but small and steadfast wins the day in this cheerful story with timeless appeal.

On the Mighty Mountain Road Crew, the trucks come in one size: BIG. That is, until the little snowplow joins the crew. None of the other trucks think that the little snowplow can handle the big storms, but he knows that he can do it—and just to be sure, he trains hard, pushing loads of gravel, pulling blocks of concrete, and doing plow lifts to get ready. But when a blizzard arrives, will the little snowplow’s training be enough to clear the streets and handle unexpected trouble?"

My Review: This is a cute snow version of the old tale about the little guy getting the job done and not letting the big guys get him down. This time it is just a little snowplow that has a big job to do when the snow starts falling. Munchkin loves all things trucks and he really enjoyed this story. He definitely retained a little of the story and went on to tell Daddy all about how the little snowplow was able to do things the big dump truck couldn't do. 
My Rating: This is a cute story, though an almost over told tale of the little guy proving himself to the big guys who teased him.  It was still fun and appropriate for the winter and Munchkin's obsession with big trucks and snowplows.  We give it a rating of Three Paws.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
