A Tuff-to-Beat Christmas


Share the joy of discovering the true meaning of Christmas with a repentant, spoiled brat Paige Covington and her thoroughbred jumper. “All this commotion over Christmas. Why not just hand over the loot and forget the traditions?” Paige is in for a big surprise when a juvenile court judge assigns her to complete sixty hours community service at a hippotherapy clinic, using horses to assist physically and mentally challenged individuals. Unveiling the theme that to give of oneself rewards the giver most, this tender, beautifully illustrated book will become a favorite for the entire family, horse lover and non-horse lover alike.

“A Tuff-to-Beat Christmas really touched me. I thought Paige was a little stinker at first, but Betty made the girl’s change seem believable. Even though I am not a horse person, Betty writes about them in a way that make me want to take riding lessons. I put my son in the bathtub before I started to read and got so caught up in the story that the only time I set the book aside was when he stood in front of me with bubbles in his hair. By the end of the story, I had tears in my eyes.” – Tammy Daybell, Vice President of Spring Creek Book Company, Author of the Tiny Talks Series
