Bruiser & the Big Snow – Gavin Bishop

Posted: December 25, 2013 in children, picture book, Review

bruiser and the big snowBruiser is a digger who works hard and is exhausted at the end of a busy day.  It snows overnight and Bruiser helps everyone in the city by using his scoop to clear the streets and footpaths for all the machines trying to get to work.  He works hard and finally has cleared everything, so pops open a can of oil to relax with.  Then he hears a sound – a tricycle is trapped and Bruiser has to dig out a snow bank to save him!

A heart-warming tale about a digger who never gives up, the story is full of vehicles, noises, and activity. This is fun to read aloud as you can mimic the noises, while there are enough vehicles to delight any child who loves machines.  Filled with colourful, fun illustrations, this book is aimed at 3-6 yr olds and is a sequel to the 2010 classic, Bruiser.  The dedication was sweet and gives credit to a profession most don’t think about.
