School Library Journal - 10/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—The painterly illustrations by Fancher and Johnson are the real star in this rhyming ode to the lone trucks working into the wee hours of many blustery nights. The rhythmic narrative follows a snow plow driver (and his dog) as he says goodnight to his neighborhood and gets ready for an oncoming storm. He picks up his salt, tests his rig, and plows into the blizzard. "Sno keeps falling fast and deep./Miles to plow before you sleep./Pay attention. What's ahead?/Take no chances. Stop instead." The man rescues a stranded driver, watches a midnight train blow snow from the tracks, and returns home just as everyone else is waking up. VERDICT A quietly heroic choice, perfect for preschool winter units and for construction truck lovers everywhere.—Jenna Boles, Greene County Public Library, Beavercreek, OH - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
