December Book-a-Day 17: Olive, the Other Reindeer

Olive, the Other Reindeer is one of my favorite Christmas books for the sweet story and darling illustrations. My students always got such a kick out of the pun in the title. Did you know there's a pop up edition and an Olive the Other Reindeer pop-up advent calendar? So cute!


While listening to "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" on the radio, poor Olive gets confused by the line, "All of the other reindeer…" and decides she must be a reindeer rather than a dog! She makes her way to the North Pole to offer her assistance to Santa. But she ends up saving the day when Santa's bag gets a hole, dropping presents and candy that only Olive is able to find. What a helpful reindeer, er- dog!


Here's a quick and easy Christmas craft that won't take all day to finish. Candy Cane Reindeer.
