Randolph the Moose lives with his mother in the Great White North. After a chance encounter with the reindeer from Santa Claus’ sleigh-pulling team, Randolph finds new joy in trail running as he trains to join the reindeer in Santa’s flight school. But when the head elf places him at the workshop loading dock instead (due to his tremendous bulk), Randolph has to use his brains and work ethic to earn respect at his new job… and even save Christmas.
Imagine Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, except…
– Randolph has a healthy self-image
– Randolph has a more positive outlet for his feelings
– Randolph runs, but not away from his problems
– Randolph is pro-active, refusing to let Santa’s workshop define him as a moose

I love to read but have not read many picture books recently. And, many may not consider Randolph the Christmas Moose: A Yuletide Fable of Empowerment a picture book but I do. And, I loved it!
First off, the book starts off with a part of the Christmas fable that children love – reindeer. Unfortunately, they are not behaving any better towards Randolph than they did towards Rudolph in that Christmas classic. The big difference here is Rudolph may be leading the bad attitude.
Randolph does not like his treatment but after talking with his mom, he gets a plan in order, only to be disappointed again. But he works his plan until fruition.
That’s an adult perspective. I cannot wait to share this book with my grandson. You, too, should share it with the children in your lives by picking up a copy. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
