Book Review #126 - A dog Named Christmas by Greg Kincaid

A Dog Named Christmas. Greg Kincaid

When Todd McCray, a developmentally challenged young man still living on his parents’ Kansas farm, hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading to Christmas, he knows exactly what he wants for the holidays. His father objects, but Todd’s persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.

But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the “Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.” What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men—and animals.

My Rating: 5/5

I knew I would like this book before I read it because I love to read books about dogs.

What I liked most about this book was that the whole book you think that this is Todd's story when really it is about Todd's father.

I loved Christmas, he was by far my favourite character. He had all the typical characteristics that everyone loves about dogs.

I just watched the movie adaptation of this book and it didn't compare to the book at all.

If you have this book on your TBR shelf I would recommend reading it around Christmas time.
