    On Sunday, November 29, 2009, more than 12.5 million families fell in love with the television adaptation of the novel A Dog Named Christmas. Within forty-eight hours after the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie aired, the initial run of twenty thousand DVDs sold out. Two years later, when Christmas with Tucker, the prequel to the McCray family stories, was released, it was described by Dean Koontz as “a perfect Christmas read,” by A. J. Jacobs as “lovely and poignant,” and by Publishers Weekly as “cute, hopeful, and heartwarming.” Now, the much-anticipated third installment, A Christmas Home, will prove to be yet another holiday classic.

    Would you listen to A Christmas Home again? Why?

    Yes. Not only is it a heartwarming, touching story, but also it teaches us in a very effective way not to judge others based on appearance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Christmas Home?

    When Todd and Laura went to the service dog training facility to apply for a job without telling Todd's parents. Another lesson in not assuming the worst no matter what the evidence seems to present.


    What about Mark Bramhall’s performance did you like?

    He does a great job of re-creating the voice of the autistic Todd which would be very hard to get effectively just by reading the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Todd makes the decision to leave home to pursue his dream despite the odds against him.


    Any additional comments?

    This is so much more than just a story about dogs. This story is a great lesson in how we should all treat each other so that all of us can achieve our purpose in life.

    Todd, the youngest of four children, has a developmental disability that keeps him at home on the farm with his mother and father. One special holiday season, Todd hears an ad on the radio from a shelter looking for temporary homes for their dogs during the holiday week. When Todd's parents at last give in to his pleas for this charitable cause, the family is faced with an entire shelter full of dogs needing homes.
