Review of "Santa's First Vegan Christmas" by Robin Raven!
Everyone marvels at Santa Claus’ extraordinary feat of flying around the entire globe in one night, but has anyone wondered how the reindeer fare? After all, they are the ones doing most of the work! Robin Raven provides some illuminating perspective in her debut children’s book, “Santa’s First Vegan Christmas.”
The colorful storybook begins at a nighttime North Pole celebration, hosted by a family of reindeer. St. Nicholas soon barges in, looking for a set of strong flyers for his yearly holiday flight. Instead of free labor, however, he finds some enlightenment from a patient young calf named Dana. She implores Santa to understand his request through the eyes of the animals. What follows next is a Christmas Carol-esque transformation that leads to the liberation of all the world’s critters.
Not only is “Santa’s First Vegan Christmas” a sweet story for any animal-loving youngster, it is also a bright and colorful masterpiece. Each page dances with the hues of a swirling night sky reflecting upon a fresh blanket of snow. As the tale unfolds, the reader will undoubtedly feel the unfolding warmth that comes with seeing finned, feathered, and furry friends living freely and happily.
You can find Robin’s book on Amazon – just in time for the holidays!
