Snow and Little Snowplow Books for Winter (12)

For the kids (or grown-ups!) who are already excited for the first snow day…


“[Usher] has created that feeling that when it snows, something unexpected and magical might lurk outdoors.” – The New York Times Book Review

Every child loves a snow day—no school and snowball fights galore! But Sam has to wait for Granddad, even though all the other kids have already gone to the park . . . and all the dogs . . . and all the zoo animals! Only when the two finally arrive does Granddad see why Sam was in such a hurry—and they have the best time playing with everyone in the snow.

For kiddos that can’t get enough of trucks and all things that go… 

The Little Snowplow

“Reminiscent of The Little Engine That Could, this story is a modern take on a timeless message.” – Kirkus Reviews


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? Taking its place beside classics such as The Little Engine That Could and Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, this tale of a plucky little plow will find a clear path to readers’ hearts.
