I really liked that this book presents a story which offers a Christian view of the secular Christmas. That is, the story features elves, reindeer, and Santa Claus, but the moral of the story is definitely a Christian one. My kids like Christmas themed children's books, and the majority of them do not aproach the holiday in this manner.
It's a sweet tale, but unfortunately the illiustrations and graphic design of the book are not polished. If the book could be reworked with better illustrations and page design, I think this book would be worthy of being on the bookshelf of any parent who loves reading with their kids.
Still, the story is one worth reading, and I think kids will appreciate it as well.
It has everything you would expect to find in an entertaining, heart-warming classic Christmas story! Friendship, compassion, hope, faith, joy and the gift of giving to others.
It also has a moral story of finding your place in life, finding out what you do best and doing it to the best of your ability!
Author Rick L. Phillips has written a story that children and adults of all ages will enjoy and want to read over and over again and the art by Boop and Pops is an added bonus of Christmas cheer!
Can't go wrong with this book! I put on some Christmas music as I read the Ebook and I feel the Christmas spirit!
Can't wait to buy the paperback and read this over and over again to my children in the future!
all seems hopeless and confusing. Such a hopeful message both reinforces the Christmas Spirit and provides a very valuable life lesson for younger readers. In a seeming ocean of Christmas stories, DINKY stands out with heartfelt emotion and
An excellent story for younger children. Although, I personally didn't care for the graphics, the story was well thought out and heartwarming. It will make a great family Christmas story.
