    This book is really sweet. It shows Christmas from a dog’s view but shows Christmas for people. I liked how many different people got together.

    A cute story…good thing it was free! I wouldn’t have paid any money for it. Written from the dog’s point of view, some things I didn’t agree with, like the dog always getting leftover people food (definitely bad for the dog and no wonder he was fat!!!) anyway, it’s a fast read, and would be cute to read again at Christmas time each year.

    There is a cartoon that is beneficial for your kid`s health, it`s fun and entertaining and it is on youtube. This cartoon is called: ” Yuvi Story Aerobics for Kids” (age 2-6). If you don`t have a kid of that age then this comment is pretty useless to you and I apologize for that:)
