Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by Kristen L. Depken -- ADVISABLE

Depken, Kristen L. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, illustrated by Linda Karl. EARLY READER. Square Fish/MacMillan, 2014. $3.99. Content: G.

This book retells the claymation version of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with a simplified text adapted for newer readers -- and, thank goodness, without the outdated sexist lines from the movie. The familiar story line, expressive illustrations, short sentences, and large font size will work well for children who are new to reading. Even nostalgic adults may enjoy flipping through the pages of this one.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn
