Scholastic - I Am a Zamboni Machine

I Am a Zamboni Machine

Author: Scholastic; Illustrator: Paola Migliari

  • AGES 3 - 5 
  • Genre Non-Fiction
I am a Zamboni machine. I drive around and around the rink.

I make the ice clean and smooth.

I scrape off bumps with my blade.

I spray down hot water to leave a perfect sheet of ice.

My brush sweeps up the loose bits of ice and snow around the edges.

Hop on, players! The ice is ready!

It's time to go out and dump the ice and snow I collected.

My job is done. See you next time!

Young hockey and ice sports fans will love seeing this big machine in action! Featuring simple facts and colorful illustrations, the text follows a Zamboni machine as it does its honest job to clear and resurface the rink.

Readers will cheer along with the fans when the hockey players can jump back on the smooth, shiny ice. Bright artwork and clear text will help all little truck and ice enthusiasts see what a Zamboni machine does!
