I am an Alaskan Kindergarten teacher and we are studying caribou the cousin of the reindeer and we recently read The Caribou Alphabet by Mary Beth Owens. I am going to add this to my resources to help those kindergarteners who still do not know their letters at this time of the school year. It will be highly engaging and I can practice both letter names and letter sounds.
