the twelve days of christmas

The Twelve Days of Christmas is yet another delight from artist Britta Teckentrup.  In her latest peek-through picture book, each of the gifts from the well-loved Christmas song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” wondrously appears as the page is turned.  This is the magic of her work.  This book is for those of us who have sung the lyrics of this song since our childhood (and recall the endless practice it took to learn all the gifts, in order, and sing them in time with the music), and now for our children who are just learning the words to this nostalgic classic.  Looking forward to sharing this one with Avery and Nate.
