Cheryl Campbell's Darling Saves Christmas is a must for anyone's Christmas collection! The mix of Campbell's words and Steve McGinnis' illustrations create a must-read for children! Raindoe Darling's curly tail turns out to be useful and saves the day when she is wandering around with a pail on her tail. Santa spots the light from Darling's pail and realizes this is the solution to his worry about the planes in the sky not seeing him and his sleigh on Christmas Eve. Darling joins the adventure of delivering gifts on Christmas Eve and learns that she is helping.
Written in rhyme, Campbell's story is cute and shares a good message to the readers: sometimes solutions to problems are right in front of us, that our hidden talents may enable us to help in unusual ways. This book is written on a fourth through sixth grade reading level; however, younger children will enjoy having this book read to them and will be able to understand the story. I read this book to my three-year-old daughter three times on the day I received it, and now she "reads" the book to herself. This is a great addition to our Christmas collection.
