Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

We just read Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in class today. It's the original poem written by Robert L. May and warmly illustrated by David Wenzel. The poem was created in 1939 as part of an advertising campaign for Montgomery Ward. I would say it's best for 5 year olds at a minimum, 6, 7 and 8 year olds would get the most enjoyment out of it. The only reason I say this is because it is a little lengthy. That being said, however, my class sat through it all without squirming, so they were definitely drawn into the story! We sang the song afterwards, and then made reindeer out of their hands and feet. (If you ever want to make one, trace the foot for the head, trace the hands for the antlers. Draw or glue wiggle eyes, draw a mouth, and add a red glitter nose!)
