Santa's New Team
by Trevor M.K. Airey




You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, right? They’re Santa’s reindeer! And they’ve been pulling his sleigh for quite a long time…since 1823 to be exact. The time has come for Santa’s team of reindeer to pass the torch of responsibility on to the next generation of reindeer, but who will they be?

Meet Ruby, Pirin, Pacer and Golden, along with Titan, Jubilee and Digeridoo, too! Each member of Santa’s new team brings something unique and special to the team. Together they have been chosen to take on the important task of guiding Santa’s sleigh. There is just one problem: With so many talented reindeer, how will they decide who will lead the sleigh?

A playful response to the poem A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore, Santa’s New Team will inspire the next generation of readers by sharing with them a story of perseverance, comradery, inclusion, and diversity, while demonstrating that we are stronger together when we share our talents with one another and work as a team.

Trevor M. K. Airey originally wrote Santa’s New Team when his first son was just three months old. The story came to him in the middle of a sleepless night on Christmas Eve. He had just finished his masters degree in Leadership from Gonzaga. Team building was a constant thought. Fast forward a few years and two more children later, Santa’s New Team is now Airey’s debut publication. We hope you enjoy!

Airey lives in Renton, Washington with his wife, three children, and their Siberian husky.
