About the book

A very little bulldozer digs up a most unexpected Christmas gift for his friends at the construction site in this holly jolly third book in the Bulldozer series from award-winning author Candace Fleming and Caldecott Medalist Eric Rohmann.

It’s Christmas Eve, and Dump Truck is carrying … carrying … carrying garland.
Digger Truck is stringing … stringing … stringing lights.
Crane Truck is lifting … lifting … lifting wreaths.
And Bulldozer is worrying … worrying … worrying.

He doesn’t have any presents for his friends—not one! And time is running out. Does he need a Christmas miracle, or just a little ingenuity, and some digging, digging, digging?

Don't miss Bulldozer's first adventure … and his second …

Read the reviews

"The little yellow Bulldozer with his entourage of animal friends is a likable character whose plight children will relate to and whose noncommercial solution is a model for creative youngsters to take as inspiration. Best for wrapping a message of giving within a truck-loving package full of sound effects. Extremely simple and rather sweet." (Kirkus Reviews)
