Recommends it for: parents reading with their younger children
This is a cute Christmas-themed book for younger children. The illustrations are a bit rudimentary and some of the narrative might be too complex for the littlest ones.

My children liked this a lot more than I did. It is a story of a little dog named Tucker's Christmas adventures...making a snowman for Santa, Christmas caroling ("Bark the Herald Angels Sing") and helping Santa fly the reindeer.

My kids thought it was cute and funny, and my 7 year old was especially happy because her teacher has a darling dog named Tucker that she sometimes brings to school. The illustrations are somewhat cartoon like and it the story was just okay for me, but as it is meant for

Who doesn't love a story featuring a Westie?
FYI Tucker does urinate on a tree in this book...which my children found HILARIOUS! We liked it mainly for that. ;)
