"Rockrhydin" by Cheryl Elizabeth Waddell, and song by Fern Michonski
Did you have a favorite toy as a child? Where is that beloved toy now? If it is within your heart and memory, it will always be a part of you.
Rockrhydin touches the hearts of children and adults with its portrayal of friendship, family, and the transforming power of love.
A few days before Christmas, Jon Michael’s father discards, Rockrhydin, his son’s old rocking horse. Although Jon Michael has outgrown Rockrhydin, he quietly goes to his bedroom and cries. As for Rockrhydin, he finds himself standing in a dump, his rickety rockers buried in snow. Despairing of seeing Jon Michael again, he is about to shut his eyes forever when Tanyabelle, the Keeper of Christmas Wishes, appears to offer him a wish, but is it one that Rockrhydin can accept? From Tanyabelle, Rockrhydin and Jon Michael will learn Christmas wishes haven’t any nevers.
