What did you like about the book? Rhyming text and beautiful illustrations with silver foil accents tell of the joyful Christmas season through the eyes of a parent and baby reindeer.  The two enjoy a snowy winter day before cuddling together under the starry sky to sleep.  Dodd’s signature digital illustrations in winter hues of brown, blues, and greens against a snowy white setting perfectly complement the gentle text.  This is a lovely story to share on a winter night.
