If I Had A Snowplow

By Jean L.S. Patrick

Illustrated by Karen Dugan
Published By Boyds Mills Press

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     So many men find it hard to put into words, their feelings for their loved ones. Not the little boy in this story however, he not only puts it into words but actions as well. "If I Had a Snowplow", is the story of a little boy who shows his love for his mother through imaginative play with his toys. If he had a snowplow he would crash through the deep snow to clear a road for her, if he had a mixer he would pour a sidewalk for her. If his toy trucks were real he would do many things for his mother to show how much she means to him, and to help make her days a little easier.  
     This book is written from a child's point of view, as his imagination helps him to soar into many role-playing situations. It is through his role  playing that he is able to express his true feelings, as most children do. It leads to many discussions about things we can do to show our love for one another, and to help one another throughout the year. 
     Very well written by Jean L.S. Patrick and beautifully illustrated by Karen Dugan, this story will be a favorite in many households. The story is written with a repetitive style, making it an easy book for early readers to enjoy, as well as a fun  book to share with a caring grown-up.  
     My son just loves this story and has read it many times over. It even became a fun book to share with his grade one class at school, where he proudly read it to his fellow pupils. I recommend this book for ages four to eight years. A fun outlook on the expression of one little mans true feelings of love for his mother.
