Tony the Truck and the Christmas Delivery
Tony loves to help. He delivers groceries and firewood, and even helps vehicles stuck in the snow. This year, he plans to deliver a Christmas tree to the Children’s Hospital. But when heavy snow traps Tony in the garage, his plan is spoiled.
Tony tries to jump over the snow, push through it, and finally, squeeze around it. Nothing works. Then he hears the RUMBLE RUMBLE of his friends, Sarah the snowplow, Felicity the front loader, and Road Assistant Rosco. With a little help from his pals, Tony gets out of the garage and the tree is delivered to the Children’s Hospital in time for Christmas.
