Sugar Belle at the Ronald McDonald House as depicted in the story.
REINDEER IN Dixie is a unique, essential offering for the Christmas bookshelf. In this heartwarming picture book, Santa sends two reindeer to live -- not in a snowy village -- but in the warm and lovely South. The expressive reindeer sisters Sugar Belle and Silver Bells quickly take a shine to their new home in Nashville. When they visit a local Ronald McDonald house during the Christmas season, Sugar Belle shows bravery in the face of a challenge. Her determination and courage brings great happiness to a young girl, inspiring her to apply the same effort to fighting her health battles.
Both touching and funny, this retelling of a real-life event proves that the very heart of Christmas is alive and well in Dixie. Children will be delighted by the jolly Santa and loveable, inspiring reindeer. Ideal for reading aloud, this picture book is sure to become a perennial holiday favorite.
Phillip and Esther Lee were inspired to write Reindeer in Dixie after raising real-life reindeer -- Sugar Belle and Silver Bells -- on their hilltop farm near Nashville, Tennessee. The Lees shared in the joy the reindeer brought to children and adults alike, and were touched by the effect their visits had on all those around them. Their heartfelt experiences were the catalyst for this book and forthcoming stories starring the adorable and ambitious reindeer sisters.
