FLIGHT OF THE REINDEER: THE TRUE STORY OF SANTA CLAUS AND HIS CHRISTMAS MISSION by Robert Sullivan

Christmas doesn't seem quite right without stories and carols around the tree, with remembrances of years past. It's the perfect time for stories, since it's already a time so full of magic, winter snow, and everything that reminds us that belief is still possible.

Flight of the Reindeer: The True Story of Santa Claus and His Christmas Mission 

Book Description

“This is the sweetest, funniest, cleverest piece of whimsy . . .”—USA Today


Children have believed the legend forever: On one evening each year a jolly old elf and eight reindeer fly all night long to deliver gifts around the world. The fact is, solid evidence abounds. Robert Sullivan, a senior editor at Life magazine, diligently gathered documentation from scientists, historians, zoologists, and Arctic explorers to prove that Santa is not just a myth. First, the reindeer: Do they really fly? “We used to think it was just extended leaping,” says Tony Vecchio, director of the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island. “But recent evidence has confirmed that it is true flight.” And Santa Claus? “He’s just as real as the gifts he brings,” reports Will Steger, the famed Arctic explorer. The gorgeous illustrations, convincing photos, and charming text make this book a special holiday gift. 150 color photographs
