It’s almost Christmas Day when Santa awakes to find that his reindeer are missing! Santa’s reindeer have flown off to have a little fun before Christmas. But who will bring them back to the North Pole in time to help deliver gifts? Why, Baby Santa, of course! While Santa and the elves hurry to finish making gifts for all the good boys and girls, Baby Santa and Rudolph take flight around the globe to round up the mischievous reindeer. As the reindeer are collected, one by one, charming illustrations portray how Christmas is celebrated around the world. From fireworks in Brazil to wooden shoes filled with gifts in Paris, Christmas is a time of joy for children on every continent. No wonder the reindeer headed out for some international fun!
