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?

Extremely simple and rather sweet. — Kirkus Reviews
