Item Description...
When Pillar, a bulldozer, gets trapped after a tunnel collapses, Skid, a small tractor, must find courage to overcome his fear of the dark and save his friend.

Publishers Description
Skid, the littlest yellow tractor in the equipment yard, wants to be mighty like the giant bulldozers, tall cranes, and massive

diggers who tower over him. But all the big machines tell him he is just a dinky tractor with a putt-putt engine. While they

are busy building a new road through the mountain, Skid is left behind to take out the garbage.

When disaster strikes and a tunnel the machines are digging collapses, Pillar, the biggest bulldozer, is left trapped in the rubble. Only a small opening is left at the tunnel entrance and the only one who can fit through the opening is Skid - who

is afraid of the dark.

Now it's up to the tiniest tractor to save the day. Can Skid find the courage to do what he was made to do and prove that he doesn't have to be big to be mighty?

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31: 6 (NIV)

Courage Conquers Fears  Mar 22, 2010
Skid lives between Mt. Grimly and Mt. Granite where he does his best to stay out of the way of the larger construction machinery. While the bulldozer named Pillar tells him that his work is important, Skid isn't convinced.

One day, while the bigger trucks and equipment were digging a tunnel in the mountain, the tunnel collapses. Everyone makes it out in time except for Pillar who is now trapped. Skid is the only piece of equipment small enough to fit into the tunnel. It's up to him to see if he has the strength to save Pillar.

Cute illustrations and a likable story kept this reader involved with the story. It's kind of a retelling of The Little Engine that Could that both boys and girls will love. I liked that while the basic premise of following through no matter how scary it may seem remained true, but Skid faced a little more adversity with his challenge.

The illustrations suit the story beautifully, they aren't too showy, but are colorful enough to capture the feel of the setting. Bulldozers and other construction equipment aren't clean and shiny, and I, for one, appreciate that the illustrator stayed true to that fact. The machines are dusty and the tunnel does come across as dark and spooky, without being too spooky for the younger reader.

All in all, I definitely think Skid and the Too Tiny Tunnel is a great read and one that parents should consider adding to their child's book shelf.
This is a cute book for little tykes  Jan 19, 2010
This is a great book for a kid who can't get enough truck toys.
My friends 3 year old LOVES it. And the illustrations are great too!
Plus it has a good message for "smaller" children.
Excellent  Oct 25, 2009
My preschooler absolutely adores Skid and the Too Tiny Tunnel by Jeffery Stoddard. She asks for this book again and again, and pages through it on her own, too. Skid addresses two things my daughter is focused on just now: Wanting to do what grown ups do and being afraid of the dark. I'll bet your young children deal with those things, too.

As the book opens, we meet Skid, a tiny tractor in a world of enormous diggers, bulldozers, dump trucks, and cranes who frequently tell him, "Stay here little guy; you're too small...We have important work and it's no place for a dinky tractor with a putt-putt engine." All except Pillar, the giant bulldozer. "You don't have to be big to be mighty," Pillar says.

"I don't?" says Skid. "How can a little tractor like me ever do big things? I'm even afraid of the dark."

Pillar replies, "A lot of tractors are afraid of the dark...You just have to do what you were made to do, even if you're afraid."

Then one day, a tunnel the heavy equipment machines are working on collapses and Pillar is buried beneath the rubble. Pete the dump truck asks Skid for help. Only Skid is small enough to make his way through the rubble and dig out Pillar. Skid is afraid, but he tried anyway. He carefully digs Pillar out and soon all the heavy equipment is cheering him. Skid, Pillar says, was "a mighty brave machine."

"That's why when you pass by an important construction job today, you'll probably see a little loader named Skid. Because even big machines know they just may need a brave tiny tractor to do what he was made to do."

Skid is a high quality book and could easily pass as a mainstream title. In fact, the only thing that makes this book Christian is the subtitle: "A story of courage based on Deuteronomy 31:6."

Throughout, Stoddard's illustrations bring the characters to life. Somehow, he manages to bring out the human qualities in heavy equipment and dump trucks.

What I Like: Everything. This is a delightfully told, well written story with quality illustrations. The message is a good one, and appeals to two central issues in the lives of young children. And while this book may generally appeal more to boys, my daughter is a huge fan, too.

What I Dislike: Nothing, really, although I would have preferred that the Bible verse be quoted. ("Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.") But perhaps the publisher chose not to do this, hoping the title would be more accessible to the mainstream market.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Christian Children's Book Review
Boys love diggers!  Jun 11, 2009
I got this book for my sons 2nd birthday and I read through it before wrapping it. It is another great book by Jeffrey Stoddard. My son is sure to love it. Cute drawings and a good story that makes you feel good. This book is going to continue his love of all things heavy equipment. If you like Pete and Pillar, you will love Skid.
