Katy, a brave and untiring tractor, who pushes a bulldozer in the summer and a snowplow in the winter, makes it possible for the townspeople to do their jobs. In 2009, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Virginia Lee Burton's birth. As part of this celebration a glitter-cover edition of Katy and the Big Snow, complete with snowy stickers, has been created. In this enduring winter favorite from the Caldecott Medal winner Burton, Katy the snowplow finally gets her chance to shine when a blizzard blankets the city and everyone is relying on Katy to help dig out. This new paperback is perfect for gift giving. Children love sharing Katy's shining moment of glory and will inevitably admire her "chug, chug, chug" endurance.

55 hp tractor seemed almost quaint today. Still a timeless book with a lot of details.

A classic and must read! Following Katy's tracks through the snow is good fun with a little one.

Excellent book with a lot of opportunities to learn about new things like a map, different trucks, etc. Please remember that the book is 70 years old, so some things not very relevant by now.

Katy doesn't stop working until all the work is done- even though she's very tired. She helps everyone in town.
