Darling the Curly Tailed Reindoe


"Darling the Curly Tailed Reindoe" by Cheryl Campbell and illustrated by Steve McGinnis is a great picture book about a young reindoe named Darling who has a curly tail. Darling unlike the other reindoes or even the reindeer has a unique physical characteristic, Darling has a curly tail. Instead of feeling unique and special, Darling is saddened by her curly tail and the other reindoes made fun of her. Her uncle Don thinks of a great idea to help Darling feel important and special again. Darling becomes the reindoe she was meant to be, confident and beautiful. With her new found confidence Darling becomes a essential part of her village and ultimately saves the day.

This book is beautifully illustrated. The artwork is cute, bright, and whimsical. I find that the drawings were a great addition to the story, they definitely enhanced the text. I found all of the story's characters to be charming. I didn't want to put the story down. I think children will enjoy looking at the illustrations. The story was engaging from the beginning to the end. I think this book has a great message for children to learn, loving who you are and embracing your differences is important and is what makes each of us unique.

I would definitely recommend this Christmas story for young readers. It is a adorable twist on the Rudolph story. I think your little ones will eat up this story about this beautiful reindoe.
