Book Review - The Christmas Pups

About the Book
On an icy, December night, three puppies are rescued from the side of the road and taken to an animal shelter. Ruff and Tuff have a plan to ensure that their sister, Penny, finds a home for Christmas, even if they can't. But with the help of an older dog named Brownie, the puppies learn the true meaning of Christmas...and find a home for all four of them just in time.

My Take on the Book
Even if you do not have a dog, you will find this a heartwarming story . You will want to share it with a special child.

The story is sweet and gentle in its theme. You will see the love the pups have for each other. The story is written from the dogs' perspective.

The book shows the importance of visiting your local animal shelter if you are choosing a pet for yourself or your family.

This story has a happy ending.

John Kanzler's beautiful illustrations add to this great Christmas story.
