Before I knew it, I was half way through the book before I even had a chance to read it to either one of my kids.

It helped me to remember how one man with an idea and good intentions can change the lives of so many children.

Well, it's hard to keep a dry eye while reading this book. The laughs & smiles that you get, interspersed with the poignant, real life drama, sure help though. It is a great story that is well written, and leaves you with a feeling of hope..........REAL hope. Read the book, know the 'secret' and then go make a difference!

I just finished reading the book OPERATION: BLUE CHRISTMAS and I truly enjoyed it. I thought it was funny, inspirational and also sad at some points. Having known the author in a professional capacity and I found myself laughing out loud because I could see him doing everything mentioned and speaking the exact same way the words were put into print.

I know that Dave and Victoria worked hard and faced many difficulties getting this book out. It was worth it!!! God knows how many people have been inspired to give back to the less fortunate this Christmas and for many Christmases to come! I know it has inspired me!

Reading this book make you appreciate what you HAVE and not focus on what you DON'T HAVE. Especially liked the letters from the children to Santa Claus and the dialogue between husband and wife. Great reading for the Christmas season.

This book shows the goodness that is in the hearts of the majority of NYPD members. It helped me to remember how one man with an idea and good intentions can change the lives of so many children. It briefly touches on but down plays the inherent danger of the job as well.

This is a great book! I found it to be a very easy to read. What I liked best was that it gave me a different perspective into the life of a New York city Policeman. I think that everybody with children should read this book, it is both heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.

A very easy read.Operation: Blue Christmas is a great Christmas book, although it does not have to be read at Christmas time (I read it in August) The letters from the children to Santa Claus will really tug at your heart strings. The unselfishness of some of the children's letters are touching. Like the child, who only wanted hat and gloves for her mother. The actual letters from the children add a nice touch to the book.The police stories are very entertaining and funny. The book can be read at any age, which makes it an ideal gift.

Read this book. It's a real life Chicken Soup for the Soul. The sad part is the operation ended. Spoke with the author and he's a salt of the earth guy. There should be more police officers out there like him. HE truly cares about the community he's serving. Wished this project can continue somehow.
