Stocking Stuffer: Baby Reindeer (Finger Puppet) by Yu-Husan Hoang
WHEN BABY REINDEER WAKES UP, HE SHAKES HIS THICK COAT AND TAKES A DEEP BREATH.
Little folks can follow this baby reindeer though the day, from wake-up time to his breakfast, the lichens which Papa Reindeer digs from under the snow with his sharp hooves.
Then the little one hears Mama calling him to run across the tundra to her for his reindeer lesson for the day, swimming across an icy river.
And finally it grows dark, and Baby Reindeer snuggles sleepily into Mama Reindeer's warm shaggy fur for her goodnight nuzzle and kiss.
In a winsome and inexpensive little stocking stuffer for the very young, Yu-Husan Hoang's charming miniature board book, Baby Reindeer: Finger Puppet Book (Little Finger Puppet Board Books) (Chronicle Books, 2016), offers a very clever finger puppet book with a wintry theme. Any size finger, from grownups to toddlers, fits inside the plushy pocket in the back to move Baby Reindeer's head to animate him in each scene in this small and sturdy board book. Baby Reindeer can shake off the snow, nibble moss, and nuzzle Mama to follow along with each page. Toddlers can do it for themselves, and older kids will happily vie for a turn to perform this story for the very young.
