Item Description...
Mint the pony, a gift from Grandpa Tom to his granddaughter, is out in a harsh Christmas Eve storm. As Tom is working to get Mint into the barn, he wishes to be a pony to communicate directly with Mint. Tom realizes that is why God sent Jesus to earth as a baby. Sensing Tom's epiphany, Mint gets up and walks into his stall. Tom joyously rides his tractor to church to join his family.

Publishers Description
In the small town of Port Washington, on the Herman Horse Farm, lives a retired champion pony named Mint. Grandpa Tom owns the farm and is the horse trainer for all who live there. Mint is one of the only Christmas gifts he ever gave. Given to his granddaughter on her sixth Christmas, Mint has become a permanent fixture on the farm since reaching the age of thirty. During a harsh Christmas Eve snowstorm, while his entire family is at church (he wants nothing to do with Christmas), Grandpa Tom tries to bring Mint in from the field and into the warm barn. Mint refuses. After using every horse trainer's trick to lead the old pony into the barn, he fails. Grandpa Tom reaches the point of despair. Mint is starting to freeze and lies down in the field. Helplessly, he kneels over the freezing pony and whispers "If I were only a pony, I could communicate with you and lead you to safety." Alone in the field, Grandpa Tom's thoughts turn to Christmas and with clarity the meaning of the day enters his heart. For the first time he understands that as he wished to become a pony to save Mint, God needed to become human, to save people. He understands why Christ needed to come to earth. As Grandpa Tom's thoughts become clear, Mint stands up and walks into the barn towards his stall full of soft bedding and warmth. Grandfather Tom receives Mint's Christmas Message.

From The Book Jacket
On a storm Christmas Eve, in a field of horses, Rebecca's Grandpa Tom works to save a freezing pony. After all his attempts fail, Grandpa Tom learns a valuable lesson from the old pony. This snowy evening will forever changes the heart and soul of Grandpa Tom.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful Mutlilevel Book  Mar 1, 2004
This book will appeal to readers of all levels. The story line has multiple meanings for children and adults. The story of how the real Christmas message is delivered to an old carmadgeon is told in a delightfully meaningful way. The art is beautiful and reminiscent of farms I have seen.I hope to see it become a Christmas classic for all families.
Ponies & Christmas & Grandpa's--A Kid's Delightful Story!  Dec 3, 2003
This will touch many of all ages with its takeoff of the infamous flock of birds and the barn story.

Here, developed in tale of horse named Mint and its use by God to allow Grandpa to realize the truth about the Christmas season, that in Christ God came to earth from heaven above to be our Savior.

The story is well-written with focus on children listeners and readers. The art is just delightful and very well done.

Wonderful gift for your own kids, grandkids.

A soulful story, heart-touchingly illustrated  Nov 15, 2003
Mint's Christmas Message by Mary Y. Spitz is a powerful holiday story set during a stormy Christmas Eve, as Rebecca's Grandfather Tom tries to save a freezing pony. After all his attempts fail, Tom learns a lesson that will transform his spirit about the meaning of the Savior and Christmas itself. A soulful story, heart-touchingly illustrated by Joanne Y. Pierce, Mint's Christmas Message is a children's picture book that will delight young readers the year round.
Great Family Holiday Story!!  Nov 7, 2003
This is a wonderful and uplifting family story. Our whole family loved it. The story will be particularly appealing to any child who likes animals, especially horses. For small children, it is a nice book to be read by or with parents. For those a bit older, the story and writing are interesting and challenging enough to make for a fun and easy read. Probably would be a super gift for Xmas without spending a fortune.
