Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows…

In 1939, Robert May created the story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer as a holiday promotion for Montgomery Ward. This beloved red-nosed reindeer first aired on NBC on December 6, 1964.

In honor of the 75thth anniversary of Rudolph’s story and 50th anniversary of the original air date, this classic has been re-released in both print and multi-media format. It has also been adapted in early reader and graphic novel format.

Check it out today!

Remembering Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou : a biography of an award-winning poet and civil rights activist


The legendary Maya Angelou died today, she was 86 years old. Maya was a writer, actress, professor, singer, dancer & activist whose voice and actions were celebrated and admired all over the world.

Dr. Maya Angelou Speaks is a series hosted by Scholastic which features video clips of the celebrated poet answering important personal and cultural questions – including her poetic inspirations, the importance of commitment to community, and more. Two of the clips are especially moving today::

“Life is a constant lesson and so I’ve passed some and I’ve flunked some and so people will read, and see, and they will use what is useful for them.” We will. And we thank you Maya.

This one is Maya’s message to you:

A wise woman.
