My 5 year old daughter brought this book home from Kindergarten one day. We read it at bedtime and were both amazed at the wonderful illustrations. Any child who loves animals will enjoy this book. It also has a nice change from the normal Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen thing. These reindeer have more interesting North Pole sort of names. We loved it!

I just read another one of Jan Brett's books. the name of it is The wild Christmas Reindeer. This picture book is not monotonous. It will keep you awake. It's a great book.
The story is about an elf named Teeka. Teeka was responsible to get Santa's reindeer together and ready for Christmas Eve. No, it isn't Dasher, Dancer or Rudolph, it's 8 different reindeer.when training, Teeka uses mean commands and loud voices. the reindeer were furious. they went insane. Teeka couldn't stand it. She nicely apoligized and the reindeer for gave her. Teeka settles them down and gets them ready for Santa. Santa said she did a fantastic job.
My oppinion is that this book was great. it caught my attention quickly. Like all Jan Brett books they tell another story on the side. that's what is cool about it. The illistrations are beautiful. I urge you to read this you will have fun just reading.

This was the first Jan Brett book in our family library. From the first reading, this book became one of our very favorite Christmas stories.
Follow Teeka's adventures as she works furiously to prepare Bramble, Heather, Windswept, Lichen, Snowball, Crag, Twilight, and Tundra for their Christmas Eve outing. Don't be surprised to hear your children murmur "that's not going to work" as Teeka finds that being bossy isn't always the best way to get the job done.
As with all Jan Brett books, the illustrations are captivating. As a special treat, each page is framed with Christmas illustrations containing "extra" pictures relating to the story.
If you've grown tired of reading about Rudolph and friends, you and your children can snuggle up with this book and learn about the "wilder" side of Santa's reindeer.

I thought this was a wonderful story with exquisite illustrations. My 3-year old was enthralled with it, and checks it out from the library whenever she can. It's a good story about responsibility and treating animals with understanding, as well as getting ready for Santa's sleigh ride.

I love any Jan Brett book! The artwork is beautiful and incredibly creative. Her stories are great, whether you are reading to a child or they are able to read themselves. This story in particular is very cute, and with a nice message, the idea of a child having such a big responsibility, but given this opportunity she is learning along the way and eventually figures out how to achieve her goal. My favourite thing about this is that it is a great lesson for parents as well, even when stressed and under pressure things will go more smoothly when gentleness is used. It's a take on the old saying, pull too tight on the reins and the horse will buck!

...The Wild Christmas Reindeer is about Santa Claus asking a girl named Teeka to get his reindeers ready for Christmas Eve.
Teeka has never done this before and Teeka wanted it to be perfect.
Teeka gets the reindeers but they act crazy.
The next day Teeka brushed their hare and trained them how to fly or tried to train them to fly.
At the end Teeka realizes that she has been yelling at them. She tried to be nice and they flew. She gave them to Santa Claus. He flew off and thanked her for her help. This is a very nice book I hope you read it. It is good for beginners and has very nice pictures...
