Book Excerpt  


"I am an angel and I will tell you a story this Christmas Day. It is a story about a small dog. He was the smallest in a group of three street dogs who had no home. Small dog would often look for food where he could. Sometimes he found scraps of food near the garbage cans or he ate food which has been dropped on the street. He also got food from a kind man who fed him.

Often he would go to an alley with the other dogs because there they would be fed by Mr. Rosario, a good man who worked in a business nearby.

But small dog was the last to eat because the bigger dogs pushed him out. Mr. Rosario had tried to catch the dogs so they wouldn't be homeless, but they always ran away when he got close.

One day Mr. Rosario stood there looking at the smaller dog who was waiting behind the pack to eat. He said, "Small dog, I will call you "Scrapper, because you only get scraps of food and that is not enough even for a small dog like you."


My Review:

SCRAPPER'S CHRISTMAS STORY is just the cutest and sweetest story about a small dog wanting to find a warm home that is full of cuddles and hugs with plenty of food.

Scrapper tries to get food where all the big dogs get food in the alley where a man gives all the dogs food but with him being so small the bigger dogs kick him to the side. The man tries to give Scrapper more food after the big dogs leave but Scrapper is scared and runs away.

Will Scrapper ever find a forever home? A place where he can lay beside a warm cozy fire? A place where he can get all the hugs he wants?

SCRAPPER'S CHRISTMAS STORY is a great children’s story that any parent can read to their child at bedtime or any time of the day or night. SCRAPPER'S CHRISTMAS STORY is a great story to be read at Christmas or any time of the year.

I would recommend reading SCRAPPER'S CHRISTMAS STORY any day or time! Grab a copy of SCRAPPER'S CHRISTMAS STORY today!
