“The Village Garage” is a charming book that puts the seasons on display through the eyes of the workers at the village garage. In spring they can clean up from winter storms and wash the trucks. In summer they are busy fixing roads. In fall there are lots of leaves to clean up. And in winter there is snow to plow. There are so many things for them to do, and they enjoy their job.
“The Village Garage” is a great book for boys and girls ages 4-9; however I think that this book will have a strong appeal to boys who will enjoy learning about the seasons by connecting it with the different activities requiring trucks, power equipment, and more.
