The Legend of Ranger Children's Book #Giveaway

Last night I stayed up late catching up on my DVR'd holiday movies. After the credits rolled, I grabbed my latest holiday read and curled up in bed. I just can't get enough of the Christmas season! I am soaking up all the feel good stories, whether video or print. I'm not even particular about genre. I can enjoy children's stories as much as those written for grownups.

I didn't think twice when asked to review the children's book, The Legend of Ranger: The Reindeer Who Couldn't Fly by Alan Salisbury and illustrated by Roberta Baird. Not only would I be able to enjoy yet another holiday story but I could do so with my kids! The book is a feel good story about a reindeer, Ranger, who must find the secret to become a flying reindeer. After much searching in physical locations and encountering obstacles along the way, Ranger finds the secret within himself. The story is creative, encouraging, and engaging story for young listeners. I love the many talking points included for parents and children to discuss throughout the story. This story may not be suitable for the youngest listeners in one sitting, the book is word heavy and picture light. I believe readers 5 years and up would most enjoy cuddling up and reading with an more experienced reader. And really, isn't that the best way to enjoy holiday stories?
