Product Description

Amazon Review

This old-fashioned tale about one little snowplough's determination in the face of a small town blizzard has all the charm and moral grit of The Little Engine That Could. This isn't surprising, considering that Caldecott award-winning author Virginia Lee Burton (The Little House) specialises in bringing the inanimate to life with endearing illustrations and stories of fortitude and vulnerability. Katy, a red crawler tractor, "could do a lot of things," Burton explains early on. In the summer she is a bulldozer, helping to build and repair roads in the City of Geoppolis. In the winter, she turns into a snowplough, waiting and waiting for her chance to be useful. Most of the winters, though, the snowfalls are mild and the town doesn't need Katy. But when the big one finally hits, the town is buried in page after page of powder. The power lines are down. The doctor can't get his patient to the hospital. The fire department can't reach a burning house! "Everyone and everything was stopped but...KATY!" Suddenly, the entire community is dependent on one little snowplough. Children love witnessing Katy's shining moment of glory and will inevitably admire her "chug, chug, chug" endurance. (Ages 4 and older) --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

At 51 years of age and very recently a first time grandfather with the aid of Amazon.com I started searching for my favorite stories from decades ago. All of Dr.Suess and the Little Engine That Could to Thorton Burgess's many publications that make me smile so many years later. Of all my past memories Katy and the Big Snow was one that I checked out of our local Library at least 3 times a month. It taught me that determination is most important in acheiving goals and that good things come to those who wait and endure. These are the types of books our younger generation should be reading instead of what is available on television these days. I hope someday my Grandchildren will come to enjoy this book as I have.

This was my favourite book as a little boy. i used to spend hours looking at the illustrations. Now I've brought a copy for my baby girl and she loves it too! The story is good fun and the illustrations are beautiful and there are lots to look at and to keep you entertained. I used to like following Katy around the city on the big map in the middle of the book. I wonder perhaps if this book is the reason that I ended up marrying a girl called Katy... Something subconsciously made me have an affinity with the name.

This was one of my favorite books when I was little, and now
my two year old loves it. It is simple enough that he likes to hear the whole story, yet it still captures his interest. I still enjoy this story after all these years!

I loved it when I was 5. I will see how my grandchild of 2 likes it. I had meant to get the full copy and not the board book, but this is well bound and more suitable for younger children
