This is such a cute story, your kids will love it, and it's a story that you adults will love. The illistrations are enchanting, and you'll notice that while the main story is going on, there is a sidebar with another story going on without any need for words!

A very cute story about Teeka and her attempts to get the reindeer ready for Christmas.

It is December first. Santa asks Teeka to get the reindeer ready for to fly on Christmas Eve. Through words and pictures, Jan Brett tells of Teeka struggle to make the reindeer cooperate, and the changes Teeka herself go through. This addition to the Santa tale is refreshing in that the art is of Nordic culture, giving children a lot of detail to look at and talk about.

This book was given to my son's in 1992 and every Christmas since they still enjoy the story and the wonderful illustrations. It has become a tradition to bring this book out every year. My youngest is 10 and just asked for it tonight. A great book for all ages.
