Welcome to Advent Reads!
This is an event I have had on my blog for several years running now. Each evening I feature a different holiday themed book. Think of it as your Book Advent Calendar! I post a variety of holiday books including romance, children's, middle-grade, mystery, paranormal, and I try to find some that are other holiday celebrations than Christmas too. I hope you will stop by each evening to see what new book I have for you!
Synopsis: "Add a big dose of Christmas cheer to an array of trucks for counting and you have the components of read-aloud holiday magic.
One doughnut truck, on a cold winter day, drives into town and parks and stays.
The snowy town is filling up with a procession of trucks of all shapes and sizes, including a snowplow, a crane, a digger, a semitrailer transporting the town's majestic Christmas tree, and even a flatbed carrying Santa's sleigh. All in all, twenty trucks roll in full of sparkle and anticipation, ready to set up the holiday festivities. But when the star being hoisted to the top of the Christmas tree wobbles and crashes to the ground, what could possibly be used to replace it? Thankfully, a pair of siblings scan the scene and come up with the perfect solution. Author Mark Lee and illustrator Kurt Cyrus team up again for a buoyant story delivering satisfying rhymes, holiday spirit, and most importantly, twenty trucks for counting."
My Review: Munchkin was, and still is, a huge fan of trucks, so I am always ready to pick up a picture book involving them. This one was a fun book as a variety of trucks work together to bring a town Christmas celebration together. Not only is a great book for those little truck fans in your life but it also includes the counting element and the familiar scenes of winter and Christmas that young kids will enjoy. This would be a fun book to read with the little ones throughout the holiday season.
My Rating: This was exactly as expected, Munchkin would have loved this book when he was younger and we would have had to re-read it again and again. I give it a rating of Four Paws.
With that, I hope you all had a great time with the Advent Reads series this year and maybe found a book or two to pick up for yourself or a loved one.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!
