Review: Kosmo's Christmas Delivery
`Kosmo's Christmas Delivery` written by author Deb Kalmbach and illustrated by artist Joey Palmberg is a fun, short read for all children. It has lots of colorful illustrations and short paragraphs on each page. It could be read by a parent to a child, or a child who can read. It would make a great Christmas gift.
The story is told from a dog's point of view. The dog, Kramer, is jealous of the new dog Kosmo. Kosmo seems to get all the attention even though Kramer has been the family pet much longer than Kosmo.
The picture on the front cover depicts the jealousy Kramer has over the happy, energetic Kosmo. I think the first illustration, in the book, is most effective in developing the story. It shows the daughter, Emily Jean, hugging Kosmo. While Kosmo is giving her doggie kisses, and Kramer is sitting in a chair pouting.
The easily identifiable trait of Kosmo is that he is very friendly and loving. I believe children of any age can sympathize with Kramer while loving Kosmo. I recommend this story to parents of young children and to children of all ages.
