Thanks Rudolph, For 50 Years of Christmas Memories

Rudolph final

 As a child, I remember scouring the paper every December for the arrival of TV Christmas Specials. It just wasn't Christmas until I got to meet up again with all of my favorite Christmas characters. There is no doubt, that Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer was, and still is, one of my favorites. The story of Rudolph is still cherished in my heart, and now has become a part of my own children's Christmas traditions. As we sit down together to share in this enchanting story, it takes me back to all of the times as a child that my own family all sat together, drinking our hot cocoa and eating popcorn, giggling with excitement as we waiting for Rudolph's arrival on the screen. This wonderful Christmas story has become a Christmas tradition in my own home, with my own kids, and because I have experienced it for myself, I smile watching them share in its joy. I  know that one day, they will watch it with their own children and Rudolph will take them back to their childhood and they to will remember the magic of Christmas and the happiness every child should experience growing up, especially at Christmas.

If you want to create some magical Christmas moments with your own children, check out this Complete Listing of 2014 Holiday Christmas Specials, including when you and your family can grab some hot cocoa and popcorn of your own and experience Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer!

 It's hard to believe that Rudolph is celebrating 50 years this December! I can't imagine how many wonderful Christmas memories that adorable reindeer, and all of his friends, have given to so many children over the years. In honor of Rudolph's 50th Anniversary, a very special Pop-up book has been created and published, to invite children and parents to come together in a different, but equally magical, way to enjoy this very special tale.

The most beloved holiday television special of all time comes alive in this special edition pop-up book. Dash away with Rudolph on his adventures as he meets an unforgettable case of characters: the elf/aspiring dentist Hermey, the affable miner Yukon Cornelius, the Abominable Snow Monster, and a legion of misfit toys. This heartfelt Christmas classic has been enjoyed for generations. Delight young readers with the magic of the holiday season and the tale of how one remarkable reindeer saved Christmas on one foggy night. - Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Special Edition Pop-up Book

Rudolph Final 2

This 12-page, hardcover book, is simply a delight, from cover to cover. I have never seen a pop-up book with this much attention to detail and an obvious intent to create a memorable book. With every turn of the page, my kids gasped at the wonder found in this book and as we finished the story for the first time, I was so happy to find it stayed true to the story of Rudolph and all of the characters we know and love. This book has never left our living room! It's quickly become a family favorite in our house and the first one my kids to go to read before bedtime. This story truly comes to life on the pages of this pop-up book and it's clear by the looks of joy in my own children's eye - Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer has never lost his magic.
