A holiday classic by the author of Danny and the Dinosaur, available again—and now with full-color art!

Milton the moose wants to help pull Santa’s sleigh. “I have never used a moose before,” says Santa, “but I’m willing if you are.” At first, clumsy Milton is not very good at landing on roofs. But when Santa’s sleigh becomes too heavy for the tired reindeer, Milton comes to the rescue. This reissued edition is a funny holiday twist on Santa and his reindeer by Syd Hoff, celebrated author of Danny and the Dinosaur.

Santa’s Moose is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.

Oh how much I loved reading this story. I was not familiar with it before. It was originally printed in 1979. Milton the Moose is pretty awesome. I think all preschoolers would really enjoy this story told in the classroom at school. If a teacher is not familiar with this story, then please acquire this book.

Santa's Moose is classified as a Level 1 in the I Can Read books. It's a good little book to get new readers interested in reading, the illustrations are wonderful and colorful and this story is so much fun. They will want to know what Milton the Moose is up too. It will encourage them to want to practice their reading.

Now on to Milton and his story. Oh my gosh, so Milton is a moose in the woods, that is super excited about Christmas coming up. So when he comes across the 8 reindeers, on their way to the North Pole. Milton decides he wants to help Santa too. And what do you know, Santa says yes and away they go. Of course Milton is quite large since he is a moose and has a bit of trouble at first, but they he gets the hang of it and ends up saving Christmas you can say. It's a really adorable story. Perfect for the upcoming Christmas season.
