Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Picture Book
(Whitman Publishing Co; Racine Wisconsin- 1951)
I only have a few things (recently discovered) from my childhood, but my son recently found this with a few old photo albums. I am not a saver, but this is one of the few things I apparently kept, as I recalled loving this book. The Santa Claus on the cover is wearing a felt suit, and I just about wore it out from constantly rubbing it.
In this story what we call elves were called "brownies", and Rudolph was the only reindeer that mattered apparently, as none of the others had names......this is seriously too funny!
