Marty Cromarty and the Christmas Chicken by Kevin P. White is destined to become a Christmas classic. Marty is a young boy who allows his curiosity to take hold as he explores why the woman next door is so lonely. After Marty accidentally hits his ball through Mrs. T's window, his parents send him to offer to work to pay for the damages. As Mrs. T. responds, Marty sees the most beautifully quilted chicken. Marty learns more about Mrs. T. and her history as the story progresses. Read it to discover why Mrs. T. is so depressed and what Marty does to help her learn to live again. Marty’s stories are fantastic. The ending will thrill those who read it. God does have a reason for all that happens.
Kevin P. White is a Christian and not ashamed to share his faith gently. He wrote Marty Cromarty and the Christmas Chicken to share the true meaning of Christmas and how it affects those who follow God’s promptings. Even non-Christians will enjoy it as it offers much. Parents can read it with or to their children and discuss many life lessons and skills. For example, children need to learn to take responsibility for their actions. They also need to be polite and kind. White also mentions adoption for the many children who have lost their parents. Learning how to deal with death and loss is a significant need for children. This story will teach you the secret of a chicken and its eggs. It is a story worth reading and sharing with your children and should be on every child’s bookshelf.
