Book Review & Giveaway: Randolph the Christmas Moose by Gerry Gibson

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

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Randolph the Christmas Moose is a funny and delightful story about a moose who wants to participate in the reindeer games. It surprised me when Rudolph, of all the reindeer, told him no. How ironic is that?

Randolph kind of reminds me of Rudolph except instead of pouting, he works toward his goal. His mom helps him to realize that he doesn’t want to be a reindeer, he wants to be all he can be as a moose.

Randolph the Christmas Moose is a fun story with great illustrations that children will enjoy. Even better, it teaches children to work hard and be true to themselves. It also shows that stereotyping is not only unfair, but it doesn’t work in a business.

I love the changes that Randolph causes. Just think of how much better our world would be if we could all be as proactive as Randolph!

Randolph the Christmas Moose empowers kids to find the unique leader within themselves and to not allow stereotyping to limit their potential.”
–AUSTIN HIGHSMITH GARCES, author of The Miracle Tree and actor in Dolphin Tale 1 and 2

Randolph the Christmas Moose, filled with humor and character building, shares a twist to a familiar tale to produce an important message about how children can be hard-working, determined and true to themselves.”
–ADAM DOVICO, educator and author of When Kids Lead, The Limitless School and Inside the Trenches

“This is a charming and funny story that will not only entertain kids, but also help them understand that other people’s opinions don’t define them.”
–LINDSAY THOMPSON, filmmaker and writer for PBS’ Arthur

Randolph the Christmas Moose addresses many important childhood themes, including acceptance, endurance and bullying, without sounding ‘preachy.'”
–SUE ELDER, Ed.D., public and elementary school librarian, educator and bibliophile

    I still read Christmas stories, especially a Christmas Carl every year. Even at my age.
