School Library Journal - 11/01/2021 PreS-Gr 2—It's Christmas Eve, and all Bulldozer wants is to find some treasures to share with his friends Dump Truck, Digger Truck, Crane Truck, and the rest. Everyone is hard at work. "Dump Truck was carrying, carrying, carrying. Digger Truck is stringing, stringing, stringing. Crane Truck was lifting, lifting, lifting." Meanwhile, Bulldozer worries, worries, worries about not having Christmas presents. He surveys the construction site and decides to get busy scraping for treasures. However, all he find was junk. The more he scrapes, the more junk he uncovers—or so he thinks. Much to his surprise, Bulldozer discovers a real treasure that leaves his friends awestruck. Fleming and Rohmann's newest installment of the "Bulldozer" series offers young readers a subtle message about finding the beauty in the unexpected and the wonders of friendship. Bold black outlines and primary colors make this story perfect for reading aloud. VERDICT A worthy addition to any library or classroom collection.—Maegen Rose, Rye Country Day Sch., NY - Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
