Grab the reins of this Christmas counting story starring eight wacky reindeer who make up a happy family—and help Santa fly his sleigh—illustrated by Caldecott Medalist Brian Floca.
Shaggy coats, scarves of red. Two tall antlers on each head.
Get in the holiday spirit and count from one to eight in this playful tribute to a team of reindeer relatives, each quirky and fun, who help a certain jolly old man bring delight to children each year.
