My two favorite Christmas book companions bundled together!
The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett and The Christmas Trolls by Jan Brett!
These are such beautifully illustrated books and I just love the messages of kindness and giving in each of them!
The Wild Christmas Reindeer Book Companion:
This is a lovely story about Christmas and Kindness...can't imagine two better themes for the holiday season!
The illustrations are just glorious...and your kids will get swept away to the North Pole and Reindeer Training during story time...isn't that what reading is all about?
Printables, Games, Centers, Graphic Organizers and 2 emergent readers!!!
I included some fun reindeer, Santa and little girl face templates with these materials so you can throw in a little social emotional work too!
Draw and tell how the reindeer felt when they were treated kindly.
Draw and tell how the reindeer felt when Teeka was bossy.
Draw and tell how Santa felt when the reindeer were ready to fly on Christmas Eve.
Draw and tell how Teeka felt when she and the reindeer worked together.

his is a great book for teaching sequencing!
