Ollie’s Christmas reindeer is a really magical Christmas story about a little girl who meets a lost reindeer in the forest on Christmas Eve. This is a unique and enchanting story which we all absolutely loved.
One of the lovely things about this book are the cut-outs. These are not often used in children’s picture books but they really work well, stimulating interaction with the book. My littlest really enjoyed peeking through the windows into the next page and I found that they help to lead the story and encourage conversation (comprehension).
Nicola Killen is an incredibly talented author and illustrator and this is without doubt one of the best new Christmas books I’ve read in many years. I absolutely loved the illustrations and would quite happily buy them and frame each one as an individual piece of art in my house.
I can see us getting this charming story out each Christmas for many years to come.
