I always enjoy reading books about Christmas at this time of year but without a doubt this one was by far more than I expected.. After reading "A Dog Named Christmas" last year I knew I had to have "Christmas With Tucker" Greg Kincaid writes with warmth and feeling and brings out the best in man/dog relationship. Will be looking for more of his writing!
This is a simple but elegant story that grips you from the get-go. George, an ordinary young teenager, dealing with extraordinary life events will endear himself to you as you read his story.
A dog, Irish setter Tucker, along with his grandparents and the family farm, aids George's journey of surviving and growing up on a farm in the 1960s.
When I finished reading Christmas with Tucker, I had a warm glow of contentment and a sense of satisfaction that the world was a better place. Then I began to make a list of friends and relatives who appreciate the finer things in life and with Christmas just around the corner, needing a gift. This is also a perfect choice for families that enjoy reading aloud together.
