The 12 Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas by Greg Pizzoli humorously addresses the rather overwhelming number of gifts that arrive thanks to this traditional carol. His trademark jaunty, vibrantly colored animals cavort around an increasingly anxious elephant who is actually not too happy to receive a houseful of birds, drummers, pipers, and dancers. All of the course ends well. This is a darling book--perfect for a holiday read aloud.
