Introducing a Vehicle-Themed Holiday Book: The 12 Sleighs of Christmas
Reading Sherri Duskey Rinker’s bestsellers Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train is a beloved bedtime ritual for millions of kids all over the world, and her most recent hit Mighty, Mighty, Construction Site helps young readers rev up for a great day.
Now her vehicle-obsessed fans will have a new holiday tradition: The 12 Sleighs of Christmas!
Illustrated by Inktober founder Jake Parker, The 12 Sleighs of Christmas takes a STEM-based approach to a transportation dilemma. When the elves discover that Santa’s sleigh has seen better days and can’t make the journey on Christmas Eve, they organize a friendly competition to create the winning souped-up sleigh that will save the day.
Hear from Sherri herself introducing the book:
In this turbocharged read aloud, Santa’s sleigh is envisioned as monster truck, a pirate ship, a blimp, a space ship, and more. But which one will win?
You’ll have to read it to find out.
