About the book --

Practice before play!

Davy’s imagination takes him on an unusual ride down a snowy, steep hill. With vibrant, full-color paintings and a simple text, the joy of sledding is demonstrated through the mind of a young child, eager to go outside. This story teaches that while every child needs to play, have fun and enjoy life, there is discipline that helps a person learn things that are life-enriching. For Davy, it is the violin.

“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’.”

Dave Brown

“Davy’s Ride Down is a playful, snowy adventure that captures the essence of a typical New England winter through the eyes of a young boy. Energetic (and at times silly!), this story captivates its audience with charming imagery and vibrant illustrations. 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.”

Jim Zaroulis
