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
