Book A Day: 12 Days of Christmas

For the month of December, we will be featuring (at least) a book a day leading up to Christmas.  Start a Christmas tradition of reading a new book each day this month until Christmas Eve.  You can get books from the library or pick up new ones to add to your home library while you are out shopping for the holidays.  Our books will range from board books for infants and toddlers, to chapter books for teens, to craft books for the holidays to books for adults.  Let us know if you pick up one either at a bookstore or the library and what you think about it.

12 days of christmasWe are all familiar with the twelve days of Christmas.  Theodor has us looking at it in a whole new light.  Elephant is delighted to get a gift, but as the twelve days of Christmas continue, presents pile higher and higher!  You really cannot beat the pictures in this book – one of our all time favorites – especially for this aspect.

A word of warning, you  may find yourself singing this story to and with your kids instead of reading it. A fun way to get into the festive mood for the holidays.

In THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-Winning Greg Pizzoli’s pitch-perfect humor gives this classic carol new life. As more and more gifts show up in the story, fans of Greg’s previous books will love identifying familiar animals. This hilarious interpretation with festive foil on the cover makes for a perfect holiday gift.
