Author R.G. Taylor’s ‘Spike’ Resides in the Amazon Top 100, Bringing Joy to Kids

Children’s book author R.G. Taylor’s debut with Spike and the Holiday Parade (#JoinSpikesParade), is warming hearts across a wide spectrum. 

The children’s story is currently dominating Amazon’s Top 100 list for books about Kwanzaa, standing tall and holding strong for two weeks since it was published. Spike’s Holiday Parade is a story that highlights the importance and inclusive benefits and beauty of cultural diversity during the holiday season, and it’s clear the little pug’s tale is resonating with many! 

Spike and the Holiday Parade details the hijinks of the titular Spike’s family as they prepare for Winter festivities. What should be standard preparations quickly become an exciting, but over-the-top display of holiday joy, such as everyone in the neighborhood decorating their cars to reflect their beliefs in Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. In a show of unity and peace among people, the cars and thus the holidays come together to form Spike’s Holiday Parade, showing children the importance of equality and the true meaning of the season.

The book includes activities bringing families together with the adorable Findthe Pug mini-game locating little Spike cameos through the book’s backgrounds.

According to online reviewer Kirkus Reviews, Spike and the Holiday Parade is “An amusing holiday tale for lovers of cranky canines. Our Verdict – Get it!” 5 star feedback on Amazon agrees!
