Yes. Just a great story that makes you feel good.
When Christmas escaped from the shelter and ended up at Todd's farm.
Christmas, because I love dogs.
If you are a dog lover, this is a must listen.
This was such a heart warming story. It started out a tiny bit slow, but after a short time I was loving every minute of the book. This book made me feel such a wide range of emotions. At times I was chuckling and smiling and sometimes had tears in my eyes. It had such a wonderful ending. I would highly recommend this book to family and friends.
I bought this book to listen to while I did my Christmas preparations. Wrapping presents can be tedious, but I found myself looking for opportunities to sneak away to wrap presents just so I could listen to the story. Incidentally, I got my chores done in record time this year!
The story of A Dog Named Christmas was heartwarming. We do not have a family dog. You definitely don't have to have one to enjoy this book, although by the end you may just find yourself at the local rescue shelter. I loved it so much that, within a week of finishing it, I decided to listen to it again with my 11-year-old daughter during our 30-minute drive to her ballet class. She loved it so much that she was motivated to get her homework done faster so she could listen to the book rather than do work on the drive.
The performance of the narrator is exactly what it should be, so much so that I thought the author was narrating it. It was a wonderful performance. I felt I would like to know these characters in real life and I was sad for the story to end. I'll definitely listen again.
Love to read - began listening to audio books while driving - to keep me from falling asleep. Have grown to LOVE audio books - I'm addicted!
The narrator was amazing. He did such a great job of capturing the emotion and personalities of the characters. The story is just so positive! It made me feel good!
Say something about yourself!
Such a heartwarming story with plenty of giggles. I didn't expect to get as sucked in as I did. Usually I am a mystery thriller horror story kind of reader but this was great. He is accurate on animal shelter operations and I love the message provided! A must for dog lovers!
Two very special characters, one a special boy, the other an amazing dog. Read it, you will be glad you did!
What I liked about this story is that it was a good heartwarming story for a family and people of all ages. It told a story about love, and growing together as a family. It had some light drama which added some excitement, but not so much that it would be traumatic to children. The characters were very real and added some whit and humor to the story. And the narration by Mark Bramhall was just perfect for the characters.
A delightful story anyone would enjoy.
Simply, a great story...refreshingly clean , kind, & holding a sense of values,
We all should be more inclined to instill into our own lives...
