Kids BookBuzz reviews Holidays With a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations

Holidays with a Tail: A Tale of Winter Celebrations is the story of a boy named Alex, who wakes up on Christmas Day and gets a puppy named Zipper! When his grandparents come into the house, the dog runs out, and Alex and his mom chase after him down the road. Alex sees a house and a man notices them and tells them that he and his family are celebrating Hanukkah and what all happens during this holiday. Alex and his mom keep walking and they find another family who are celebrating Las Posadas and they are from Guatemala. Then they find another family who are celebrating Kwanzaa and learn about that holiday. Alex finally finds Zipper and they make it home.

I learned a lot from this book; my mom also said that she didn’t know everything about the different holidays, either. I was confused at the end of the book though when during the middle part, Alex’s mom said that they celebrated Christmas and Jesus as their savior, but then at the very end Alex said that his dog was the best Christmas gift of all. That doesn’t make sense. This is a good story to read at Christmastime or anytime.

Product Details

Kelly Bouldin Darmofal suffered a severe TBI in 1992; currently she holds a Masters in Special Education from Salem College, NC. Her memoir Lost In My Mind: Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) tells her story of tragedy and triumph. Kelly will be teaching "TBI: An Overview for Educators" at Salem College. Kelly’s "tips" were learned during two decades of recovery and perseverance; they include:

  • Ways to avoid isolation and culture shock post-TBI
  • Tips for staying organized in the face of instant chaos
  • Strategies for caretakers and teachers of TBI survivors
  • Life philosophies that reject despair
  • How to relearn that shoes must match
  • Why one alarm clock is never enough, and
  • A breath of humor for a growing population with a "silent illness" -- TBI
Those who suffer from TBI should benefit from Kelly Darmofal's advice. She speaks often of the value of a sense of humor in dealing with TBI symptoms and quotes Viktor Frankl who believed that humor was one of the "...soul’s weapons in the fight for self preservation." I strongly recommend her work.
--Dr. George E. Naff, NCC, LPC, Diplomate in Logotherapy


Kelly is a wonderful resource about TBI for survivors, caregivers, teachers, and the entire community. The wisdom gained from her own experience makes her believable; the frankness and sense of humor that she reveals as she writes makes her authentic... Kelly and her publications have become a trusted resource for our clients who are surviving from a TBI.
--Barbara Saulpaugh, Regional Executive Director, CareNet Counseling, an affiliate of Wake Forest Baptist Health
