PreS-Gr 1"Monday. Snow. Tuesday. Snow. Wednesday. 'Snow day?' asks Jack." The red flatbed truck and his big-wheeled buddies roll out to play and clear the streets in this energetic story. The anthropomorphic vehicles skate and slide, making a snow truck and throwing snowballs. After all their fun, the streets are clean and they are ready to return to their garages. The vocabulary is appropriately limited and repetitive, and the dynamic illustrations capture youngsters' attention and encourage independent reading. Sure to be popular with truck lovers, this title is a good addition to beginning-reader collections."Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH" Copyright 2008 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
