Dachshund Through the Snow by Michelle Medlock Adams: Review & Giveaway with FrontGate Media


The size of your stature is not the measure of your heart. For one tiny Dachshund, this was a mighty big lesson.

Crosby was teeny. Even for a miniature dachshund. In fact, he was the teeniest dachshund in the whole town. But his small stature and big heart made Crosby one of the best burrowers in all of the North Pole. That’s why he couldn’t wait to enter the North Pole Animal Olympics and burrow his way to a gold medal. Finally old enough to compete, Crosby goes to town to register on Dec. 23, but when he encounters lots of hecklers and bullies who make fun of his small size, Crosby loses his confidence. With his tail tucked between his legs, he burrows as fast and far away from town as he can, running smack dab into a stranded Santa and his divine destiny.

Will this unlikely hero save Christmas?

Four to eight-year-olds will be on the edge of their seats as this holiday picture book page-turner unfolds.

Available for Purchase on AMAZON


Crosby is supposed to be a miniature dachshund, but he may just be the tiniest dachshund ever, and many of the animals at the North Pole won't let him forget it! Why, even the North Pole News ran a headline about 'the world's teeny-weeniest Weiner Dog', and Crosby hates being famous for that reason. And then, a series of events occur that threaten a favorite holiday, and Crosby may become famous for being the only one that can save Christmas!

This new children's book is absolutely adorable, and it's sure to become a Christmas classic! Ana Sebastian perfectly captures Crosby and his adventures in her fun and colorful illustrations, and author Michelle Medwick Adams adds an inspiring message to her exciting story about Crosby's dilemma. Children are reminded that everyone has been granted God-given talents, no matter their size, but it's up to us to recognize those talents and learn how to use them!

Older children will enjoy reading this book by themselves, but Dachshund Through the Snow is certainly a book for families to read together. Be prepared for fun, laughter, and cheers, as you discover how Crosby saves Christmas!

I received a complimentary of this book from the author and End Game Press. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
