The Twelve Days of Christmas by Alison Jay - ESSENTIAL

Jay Allison The Twelve Days of Christmas.  PICTURE BOOK.  Knopf (Random), 2015.  $18.  9780553496611

I will admit it – I am a sucker for Alison Jay’s illustrations.  They are utterly charming, nostalgic, and full of tiny details that are so fun to lose time with.  This has the makings of a new classic rendition of the familiar poem.  Check your shelves – if you need a new copy, this would make a great replacement.  Of course, it is a perect addition to a family Christmas collection.

GIFT – ESSENTIAL; EL – ADVISABLE.  Cindy, Library Teacher
