Midwest Book Review on “Holidays With a Tail”

Holidays with a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations” is multicultural holiday story that appeals to culturally diverse juvenile audiences.

Written experienced elementary school teacher, Kelly Bouldin Darmofal, Holidays with a Tail begins the story with Alex on Christmas Eve, after having just moved from the suburbs to the city. Alex had wished for a Christmas gift of a puppy to play with. The next day brings one new surprise after another. Being Episcopalian, Alex celebrated Christian traditions in December, and he was overjoyed to find a puppy-sized box with holes in the lid for his present. Out popped Zipper, his new adorable golden puppy, his special Christmas gift.

The next day, when grandparents came bringing more Christmas gifts, Zipper surprised Alex by running out the door and into the snowy night. This begins a wonderful tale of exploration of ways different folk with different religious traditions celebrate the midwinter time of Solstice.

Zipper leads Alex and his mom, Katy on an exploration and traveling tour of festivities and homes, including four different families celebrating the Jewish Hanukkah, the Hindu Dwali, the Latina las Posadas, and the African American Kwanzaa. Each resident kindly explains the symbols and reasons for their celebrations, along with special foods and candle lighting customs and their significance.

Alex and Katy reclaim Zipper and eventually return to their home to celebrate Christmas dinner with their family and their special foods and gifts.

“Holidays with a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations” is the perfect vehicle to explain to young children the wonderful richness and significance of different holiday celebration traditions for different cultures, peoples, and religions.

Ever wonder what it is that keeps holding you back?


Deep within the constructs of your brain, a superimposed identity has
been formed. This "glitch", embedded in your neural network through the
evolution of brain development, is an acquired Persona which perpetuates
itself by constantly creating problems and limitations in your life.
The Persona thinks for you, acts for you, and even learns for you,
but it is NOT the real YOU!


In this revolutionary book, you will discover which of the six major types of
Personas you have unwittingly acquired, and you will learn how to
free yourself from the power it has over you. Like a remedy for
an illness, The Evolutionary Glitch serves as a guide to
confronting and rising above the root of your problems.
Drawing on ancient wisdom as well as the latest discoveries
in neurobiology and quantum physics, The Evolutionary Glitch
will radically change the way you see yourself and the world
around you.


Learn the skills you need to...
  • Uproot the Persona you have acquired
  • Break the problem-causing patterns in your life
  • Follow the "signs" in your life
  • Identify your true nature
  • Do what you were born to do


    If you are ready to discover what is hidden behind the mask
    of your Persona, free yourself from your problems, and live your
    life with purpose and direction, The Evolutionary Glitch could
    be the most important book you've ever read.
