Chickadees in December

It’s December at the North Pole, So much fun, but so much to do! So many problems! And who can solve the big, big, biggest problem of all?


Only the fearless heart of a child can follow a dream into the wild . . . to a land of birdie parades and ginormous eggs, a land of mystery and majesty.  This land is our land, but not ours alone.  Welcome to Chickadeeland!

The inspiration behind the publication of Four a.m. December 25 is the author’s father, Captain Robert A. Smith.
