Today’s #picturebook is The 12 Sleighs of Christmas by Sherri Duskey Rinker (of Goodnight Goodnight Construction Sight, fame) & @mrjakeparker via @raincoastbooks

With Santa’s sleigh damaged just DAYS before Christmas the elves get wildly creative with sleigh ideas and have a build off!  Twelves sleigh alternatives are presented to Santa, each more exciting and hilarious than the last.  But, while the sleighs are amazing, are they really right for the job of quietly, magically travelling the earth to bring presents to boys and girls?  Is the tried and true “classic sleigh & reindeer” ultimately the best?

And most importantly, is Santa a good driver? (spoiler: no)

This Christmas picture book is a hilarious and creative read for smalls, with illustrations that practically vroom and roar with life.  Though wordy enough to qualify for smalls 4+up, it can easily be abbreviated for smalls as young as 2.5 and was an immediate favourite with my own small.  For vehicle enthusiast smalls this rhyming story is rich with car, truck, ship and air terminology and equally enjoyable for grown-ups as well.  A rollicking holiday treat for all!
