Book Review:

I recommend this book , A Christmas Home , because it was a very special, adventerous, and inspiring book. This novel was about a very special bond between a dog and a man named Todd. I loved how this book was written, so well that it made me feel like i was a part of the story. This story has so many really good details that I pictured what they were talking about right away. From a 1-10 rating on this book I would give it a 9 because this book was very inspiring and very creative. I loved the way it made me feel like i was a part of the story. Even though it is called A Christmas Home this essay is a good read for any time of the year. I hope you choose to read this book and enjoy it as much as I did!


Even in difficult situations , the bond between a human and their dog can overcome almost anything. Dogs can help you realize your strengths , even when others see your weaknesses. This is true in the book because Todd has disabilities, but Christmas helps him have the strength to find the leftover dogs homes when they have to shutdown the shelter.


There are many settings in this story, but the main setting is at the animal shelter. The animal shelter is where Todd and Laura work. Todd works at the shelter training dogs and trying to find them a new home. Laura works at the animal shelter as an assistant helper for Todd since he has disabilities. Laura and Todd love working at the shelter together and they have a special bond growing between the two of them. They have became very good friends and always help each other especially around at the shelter.

The setting is Present.
