Is new always better than old? When a brand new Zamboni arrives at an old ice rink, he’s just not impressed. He’s much too new and shiny for the worn down rink, and he’s much faster and smoother than the old Zamboni, who’s been left outside in the cold. The new Zamboni protests, only polishing the ice when he feels like it. Nobody, not even the mechanic, can make the Bad Zamboni work properly. But before long, an observant little boy with a silver helmet catches on to the Bad Zamboni’s tricks… Is the Bad Zamboni really bad? This book teaches us about empathy, kindness, and most of all, that we each have the power to change things for the better.
