None.


Parent Reaction

This wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be a beautiful illustration of the classic song, but it is so much more. Even though there is some text, there are illustrated panels that help tell the story without words. Each image offers something to discover, so plan to linger on them.

Type of Book:
This is a Christmas story built around the classic Twelve Days of Christmas song.
Educational Themes:

Because of the familiarity of the Christmas carol and the wordless panel illustrations, children will be able to follow along and "read" much of the story.
