December Reading with Daisy: Olive The Other Reindeer

We couldn't let this month go by without highlighting a few holiday books!  First up - Olive the Other Reindeer by Seibold and Walsh.  I would like to introduce to you Olive...
Olive is a little pup who lives in a big city.  She was taking her daily dog walk and heard, "All of the other reindeer..." playing.
Olive was singing the catchy song to herself "Olive, the other reindeer..."!  Do you get it?!  We crack up at this part every time.  Olive thought she was a dog until she heard this song...now she thinks she must be a reindeer who helps Santa!
Olive makes a quirky journey to the North Pole and Santa signs her onto his team.  You can see Olive in action on this page.
There is a little scary part in this part of the book.  We'll just say that it's a good think Olive was there to help out Santa!
The story ends with Olive enjoying Mrs. Claus' parade of cookies!!!  
The illustrations in this book are SO FUN!  We know it's a book every pup would love because who hasn't dreamed of helping out Santa Claus?!
