Grandma Drove the Snowplow by Katie Clark

The redoubtable Grandma-this book is a sequel to Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck-is at it again. In addition to collecting the town's garbage, Grandma and her sons also plow the roads in the winter. But what happens when a blizzard comes through, it's the day of the big town carol sing, and Grandma's sons are all stuck in the snow and unable to plow? Leave it to Grandma to clear the way to the church for the carol sing. With more help from her grandson Billy, she gets the streets clear and helps out her neighbors in the process, too. In fact, Grandma does such a good job with the plowing, she even beats Santa to the carol sing.

's books Katie Clark also wrote Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck and this offering takes Grandma on another journey, this time in a snow plow. A blizzard has hit the tiny community that Grandma lives in with her three sons as well as her youngest grandson Billy. The trouble is that the annual community carol-sing is scheduled to take place in the village that evening. Little Billy is very concerned but Grandma assures him that her sons will take care of the snow and make all things clear so folks can get to the church. But as the day wears on the storm puts two of Grandma's plows in the ditch. With son number three home with a broken leg, it is left to Grandma to save the carol sing. With Billy as her sidekick Grandma moves through the town helping other folks dig out along the way. With each side swing of the plow Grandma picks up various Christmas ornaments that get tossed into the truck. When Grandma finally arrives at the church she has also brought along all the things to decorate and make the party extremely festive. With Katie Clark's illustrations the story is brought to life in a whimsical array of pictures that will keep younger children entertained for hours. Full-page spreads give ample room to depict the hilarious results of Grandmas'
