"On the tenth day of Christmas, my cousin gave to me...10 Portland food carts." Damon is visiting his cousin Liz in Oregon and is loving all of its famous landmarks. Along with an Oregonian rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" are letters he sends his family back home detailing the amazing experiences he's having all over The Beaver State--from collecting thunder eggs to riding snowmobiles in Crater Lake. This book is perfect for those wanting to learn a little about this state in a unique (and Christmas-y) format. It nothing, you realize how much varied terrain Oregon is blessed with--rainforest, desert, mountains and beaches.
The Twelve Days of Christmas in Oregon, written by Susan Blackaby and illustrated by Carolyn Digby Conahan, is part of the Twelve Days of Christmas in America series. We bought the California and Washington editions, too. Looking forward to reading them!
