The 12 Days of Christmas by Jane Cabrera (board book)

My thoughts:  Children age appropriate for board books would typically not get into the 12-days-of type song or storyline. Author illustrator Jane Cabrera has endeavored to bring it to this young audience in an animal grouping of critters leaping and prancing through this cute book.

While not my favorite adaptation of this song, I do think the book has real kid-appeal in the illustrations and the animals that are involved.

Study board pages, sized just right for small hands, and bright cheerful illustrations will win over the younger set. Well worth the $7.99 list price.

About the book: Seven squirrels skiing, six bears a-snoozing. . . A best-loved Christmas song gets a lively adaptation in this board book.

Story-hour favorite Jane Cabrera brings her signature style to the classic Christmas carol, giving it a friendly animal twist. Cheerful illustrations of skiing squirrels and magic mice in an imaginative winter wonderland invite readers to join the festivities and sing along to the reworked lyrics. Children will enjoy laughing at this clever new version--from the 12 penguins skating all the way down to party in a pear tree!

Jane Cabrera's Story Time gives favorite nursery rhymes and songs a new toddler-friendly twist. These interactive favorites feature bold, bright, illustrations and catchy refrains. Don't miss other fun titles including Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, Kitty's Cuddles, and Over in the Meadow.
