There’s nothing like a magical story to get kids into the Christmas spirit, which is why you’ll be so glad to have Dasher, a new book with a  female protagonist (yay!) from New York Times bestselling author Matt Tavares, under the tree or on your bookshelf this holiday season.

Dasher: A new modern Christmas story | sponsored

Dasher is a modern Christmas story starring an adventurous young reindeer who lives with her family in a traveling circus. Longing for a different life out of the hot sun, Dasher seizes her destiny when the opportunity arises and takes off in the pursuit of the life she wants to live, one where there’s snow beneath her hooves and the North Star over her head.

A beautiful new Christmas story: Dasher | sponsored

It’s not long before she meets a lovely man in a red suit with a horse-drawn sleigh who we all know as Santa, and let’s just say that with the help of a powerful Christmas wish, nothing will be the same.

The gorgeous illustrations by author/illustrator Matt Tavares paired with this sweet story make Dasher the perfect read-aloud book for kids (and a wonderful gift idea, too). Celebrating the magic of the season, the importance of family, and Christmas wishes coming true, it’s destined to be a holiday classic for many years to come.
