A Los Diggities Christmas by Jeanie Cunningham and Elisabeth Thormodsrud has a Christmas theme as the backdrop. Oso, the youngest of the Los Diggities pack, is completely taken by the Christmas decorations. He finds the Christmas lights and music enchanting and, along with Xena and human Jeannie, Oso is looking forward to celebrating his first Christmas. Jeannie has warned him not to eat chocolates, especially while they are outside on a walk, but despite her warnings, Oso eats chocolates from a box underneath her Christmas tree. He feels sick towards the end. Will it ruin his Christmas? Will Jeannie and Xena have to celebrate Christmas without Oso? The book conveys a message to everyone about how certain types of food that are good for humans can be bad for dogs.
The story is heartwarming and will connect with all those who love dogs and have pets. The author captures the essence of the Christmas season very well. It's a heartwarming story with some beautiful illustrations that breathe life into the characters and scenes. It's a good bedtime storybook and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Books with concepts and messages are good for children and help them understand the concept or message when narrated via a story and beautiful illustrations. This book does just that. It speaks about the importance of giving proper food to dogs and also that not all human food can be good for dogs.
