Publisher's Summary

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.

Using his special charms and gifts of persuasion, Todd encourages his whole community to help in the "adopt a dog for Christmas program" and, more importantly, teaches his family the true meaning of goodwill.

    Story
    "A dog and a family"

    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.

    Story
    "Entertainingly directive to a path of honor and values we seem to have forgotten as a nation ..."

    Simply, a great story...refreshingly clean , kind, & holding a sense of values,
    We all should be more inclined to instill into our own lives...

    "Very sweet story"

    This story proves that there is a dog for everybody. Not just an animal but a member of the family.

    "If you love dogs... Listen"

    I'm an admitted dog lover so that may have a part in my enjoyment of this book. That being said this is a heart warming book that reminds us how much happiness a dog can bring to our lives.

    "Feel good story"

    This story is pretty short but I enjoyed it a lot. It definitely made me feel good. I saw the movie, which expanded on the story a bit. I like it as well.

    Story
    "Speaks to the heart."
    Would you listen to A Dog Named Christmas again? Why?

    I would certainly listen to this again.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the wife asks the husband and when does Christmas end?


    If you could take any character from A Dog Named Christmas out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Christmas out. He is one of our uncelebrated hero's.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book. It really highlighted how much pets impact our lives.
