Ah Traditions! Seems that we are always doing some kind of tradition. I grew up with them, then I shared them with my daughter and now she’s passing them on and making her own with her family. Now that we are grandparents, we get to make new traditions and share some old ones with our granddaughter. One tradition we started last year is having our granddaughter spend the night the weekend before Christmas, so we can watch Christmas shows and read Christmas story books to her. We enjoyed doing that when our daughter was growing up and wanted to continue it along with the special ornament every year. This year, we discovered Reindeer Dust, a magical holiday picture book written by Kate Dwyer. The book follows a fun and lyrical tale.
Readers are immersed in the story of hungry and harried reindeer who can’t find houses to land on through thick fog. Santa has a sled overflowing with presents, but he’ll never be able to deliver them if the reindeer don’t know where to land! One little boy, William, devises a plan: he mixes up a special batch of reindeer dust and he and his friends and family sprinkle it outside while reciting “I will always believe!” Through the fog, the reindeer are able to spot the glittering trail, and Christmas is saved!
This book is written by a mother of two who is a passionate advocate for children’s advancement and literacy. She knew she had to share the magic behind reindeer dust when her own family became so attached to the yearly tradition. She aimed to engage children’s imaginations through family participation.
As we prepare for a season of magic, we are excited to have found a new tradition of sprinkling “reindeer dust” on Christmas Eve to attract Santa’s reindeer. A perfect way to spend time together and get every member of the family in the spirit.
With a captivating tale and beautiful illustrations, Reindeer Dust is sure to do just that. After reading about the origin of reindeer dust, families can turn to the back of the book, where there is a special Reindeer Dust Recipe and poem to recite on Christmas Eve. Children will stay engaged and parents will love that reindeer dust encourages a fun and positive new tradition. Why not add a little extra sparkle to the holidays?

- Tells the exciting story about how the “reindeer dust” tradition first began
- Includes an easy reindeer dust recipe and special poem to be read on Christmas Eve
