Review of "Christmas at Grandad’s Farm," by Rusty Berther

 Review of

Christmas at Grandad’s Farm, by Rusty Berther ISBN 9781743463789

Five out of five stars

 A modification of the classic “Jingle Bells” song

 If you do not read the preamble and are a resident of the American Midwest, this story is baffling. While the song, a take-off from “Jingle Bells,” is very good, the context of swimming outside in fine weather on Christmas Day makes no sense. However, upon reading the back cover, all is made clear. The location is in Australia, where of course it is summer during the Christmas season.

 The book contains a sing-along CD containing the words set to music. I found the book entertaining and the lyrics are well-suited to the season as celebrated in Australia. I recommend this book and would have read it to my daughter if it has existed when she was young. She would have loved it.
