To top it all off, they even have their own snowplow song: “Clear the road. Salt the street. Work together, can’t be beat.” I hope the kids in your life enjoy riding along on this wintry adventure.

Sure, you'll tell me it's just trucks and I'm reading too much into the diversity concept and girl power and believing in yourself, your strengths, and the power of friendship. But I know I'm right.
The illustrations are fun, bright colors with a limited palette for maximum effect. I'm smitten by the trees in the background.
Why 3.5 stars? I read this through twice and the rhyming was a little awkward for me and awkward as a read aloud. I may just be having a moment, but where the story was adorable, the rhyming was a struggle.
Overall a cute book and worthy of your picture book collection if you have kids who like wheels.
At first I was hesitant because the listing said "children and women" or something like that, and I thought it was a book marketed for girls, like "Rosie" by the same author. But I was pleasantly surprised! It has a perfect mix of characters that both girls and boys will like and feel a connection to.
I haven't read it to my son yet, but I know he's gonna love it. I'll update the review after I've read it to him.
EDIT TO ADD
Just as I suspected, my son LOVED IT! The illustrations are gorgeous, and it was definitely a hit because he loves things that go. He kept flipping through the pages after I read it to him. The illustrations are one of the best things about this book. I'm very happy I chose this one!
Art is well done. Some of the rhymes are good. Plot is a snow day and how the vehicles work together and save the day keeping the roads clear.
Not the strongest first reads children book but also not even close to the worst.

The illustrations are adorable and the reason I'm not knocking off a second star.
3 year olds also have a much smaller understanding of the English language than 7 year olds... I'm thinking that it was given such a huge age range is that the illustrations are suitable for the younger aged listener and some of the words stretch the 7 year olds. I'm qualified to work with children as well as writing for them, so I know what I'm on about ;-)
Overall a good book, just could have done with the input of crit group and editor of children's picture books before being published is all.
