Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we’re joining a Rachel’s Random Resources tour already in progress as we shine some BOOK HEADLIGHTS on a Children’s Picture Book title ready and waiting to reveal the beauty in something many take for granted in the winter months. Curious? Ah, but you should be, because the simplicity of the act, combined with the illustrations will make it a story wee ones will want to pull out every winter season. So, if you’re ready, get in a snowy frame of mind as we explore today’s blog tour guest and ebook of choice...
The Dance of the Snow Tractors
When we hear snowy day we imagine sledding, snow angels, and hot chocolate. Siena, who lives in Ottawa, also thinks of dance!
Why? Because, when the snow comes down the plows show up and perform what she calls the Dance of the Snow Tractors.
Join Siena on her porch with a mug of something warm and enjoy the show. You'll never see snow plows quite the same way again.
Leave it to a child to help us see things in a new way.
Most adults view winter precipitation as a hazard, something to be avoided at all costs, and a plague to their day. There’s the driving, the delays, the COLD, and everything in between to deal with...unlike when you are a child. As a child, snow held more beauty because it meant snow days, sledding, winter walks, and snowball fights. It held MAGIC that can get lost in a grown-ups daily shuffle. In this story, we are reintroduce to that magic in a unique way. I mean, have you ever really thought about the “dance” that goes on between snowplows and salt trucks in their efforts to get those roads car worthy? Bet you didn’t, but now you will and while at first it may seem strange, by story’s end you’ll see it in a new light because really, there’s talent there where no one thought to look!
