Little Red

We rated this book:


Little Red is a truck in Tiny Town who, along with driver Katie, never stops working till the job is done. During a heavy winter snowstorm, Little Red jump starts a delivery van, fixes a broken headlight, bumps a stuck fire truck, fixes a flat tire, fills up an empty gas tank, and even welds a broken hitch on Santa’s sleigh, all while carrying a huge Christmas tree.

After fixing each truck, Little Red is sure he only has on more task of delivering the Christmas tree, until he hears the next cry for help. Because Little Red never quit working, all the trucks in a rainbow of colors are able to join the townspeople at the celebration of the lighting of the Christmas tree.

This is the perfect book for snuggling up on Christmas Eve. A fun repeated refrain of onomatopoeias will keep even little listeners entertained. Meanwhile, Will Hillenbrand delivers a heartwarming message about the joy of helping others and pride in a job well done. This might be the perfect addition for those little people who will find a toy truck or two under their own Christmas tree.
