Davy’s Ride Down

Davy’s Ride Down by Michele Gibeau Cronin
Illustrated by Ben F. Taylor


Ms. Cronin’s sweet and imaginative adventure took me back to the days when I, too, was a ‘Davy’ who far preferred sledding down a snowy hill over practicing my violin. Hopefully Davy will inspire others who will, like me, grow up to appreciate their parents for having instilled in them the value of ‘practice -before-playtime’.

This book is perfect for your family story time, ready to be read by the fireplace as it kindles the imagination of every child and child at heart.

Witty narrative, and vivid illustrations are what makes ‘Davy’s Ride Down’ such an enjoyable and nostalgic trip to a time when life was so simple. As expressed in the title, the story is in fact a fun and interesting ‘ride’ that kept me captivated throughout.
