Our selection for December is A Dog Named Christmas by Greg Kincaid. When Todd McCray, a developmentally challenged young man still living on his parents' Kansas farm, hears that a local animal shelter is seeking temporary homes for its dogs during the days leading to Christmas, he knows exactly what he wants for the holidays. His father objects, but Todd's persistence quickly wins out. Soon the McCrays are the short-term foster family for a lovable pooch the young man names Christmas.
But what about all the other dogs who will be forced to spend the Yuletide season in cages? In the days that follow, Todd uses his special gifts of persuasion to encourage his hometown to participate in the 'Adopt a Dog for Christmas Program.' What follows from his small act of kindness will teach his family, and his community, about peace on earth and good will toward men - and animals.
