Where Do Diggers Celebrate Christmas?

Brianna Caplan Sayres, illus. by Christian Slade. Random House, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-5247-7215-4
In the fourth of her vehicle-themed series, Sayres theorizes how different types of trucks—forklifts, mixers, cranes, tanker trucks, and others—might celebrate Christmas. She writes in pleasantly rhyming verse: “Where do tractors celebrate Christmas/ after plowing row by row?” Slade’s artwork shows the bright-eyed, anthropomorphic trucks hanging Christmas decorations, sipping eggnog, and cuddling up beneath mistletoe. All the trucks celebrate together at a snowy construction site until, finally, the trucks come closer to home, appearing toy-size under a tree. Beyond the playful depictions of trucks indulging in Christmas cheer, readers might especially enjoy details about the heavy lifting the trucks do during their day’s work. Ages 3–7. (Sept.)
