Synopsis: Little Teeka thought she had to be firm with the reindeer to get them ready for Santa's important flight, but when her bossy yelling only got their antlers tangled up, she knew she had to try something different.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Retell or draw the story from Tundra's point of view.
•  Write the story that is depicted in the border pictures.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
