Toddler-PreS–Ho Ho Ho! It’s Christmas time, and Tow Truck Joe is excited! With Christmas Eve approaching, Tow Truck Joe is driving his friend Patch through the busy streets. On the street, readers see a blue car with a hat, a red car with antlers, a taxi with Christmas lights; each vehicle they pass is decked out for the holiday. The candy cart had an accident, spinning on some ice and sending candy into nearby trees. Thankfully, Joe and Patch can help. The mail truck is frozen and needs relief, so Joe and Patch arrive with just the fix. With many stops along their way, Patch and Joe help their friends in all their holiday messes. The illustrations are cute and well-formatted to identify the different kinds of vehicles and navigate the flaps. With a positive lesson about working together, this lift-the-flap board book is a delightful holiday story for the smallest vehicle enthusiasts and those looking for holiday stories about helping others.
VERDICT A recommended purchase for all libraries.
