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.

If you love dogs, Christmas and Wisdom...

I really enjoyed this. A very simple story. It will get you in the Christmas mood if nothing else will. I am sending this as and early christmas gift to my family who are all dogs nuts and christmas crazy...I will be listening again...too.

Best Audible Book Yet! DON'T MISS IT

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. I've recommended it to everyone I know. What a wonderful uplifting story. I was afraid from the description that it would be heart wrenching, but instead it was heart-mending. A great Christmas story (I read it during the Christmas Season) this story is timeless, and I would recommend it any time.

What did you like best about this story?

That the characters were real, identifiable people who inspire the listener's loyalty. I liked everyone in the story, but especially the son who stole my heart completely. I learned from them and that doesn't happen in books often enough.

Which character – as performed by Mark Bramhall – was your favorite?

Answered above.

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

When Christmas came home.

Any additional comments?

Listen to it and thank me later.
