16 Shopping Days Left! Review of Backhoe Joe by Lori Alexander

Backhoe Joe

Okay, I know, this is the third vehicle-related book I have reviewed for the holiday gifting season - but, really, can you ever have too many truck books? This one has a really cute twist:

When Nolan finds a stray backhoe in the street, he can't wait to adopt it. But this backhoe is not very well behaved. As Nolan tries to train his new pet, he learns that maybe this backhoe already has a home.

Yes, this backhoe digs in the flower bed, and leaks all over the driveway. Nolan's parents are less than thrilled, but kids will be all over the idea of a pet backhoe! Or a cement mixer...

Gifting Ideas

This one definitely needs a set of construction vehicles
I can just hear my kids creating all sorts of stories after reading this one!
