My Rating=4 Stars

Elephant is delighted to get a gift, but as the twelve days of Christmas continue, presents pile higher and higher! A partridge in a pear tree? Cute! But soon, her dad despairs. Two turtle doves? THREE French hens?! And just what are they supposed to do with ten lords a-leaping? Kids will love each silly spread in this raucous take on the classic carol that is perfect for reading aloud around the fireplace.

This is a cute read! Of course, we know all the words. What makes this unique are the pictures. As the gifts start multiplying, the father gets mad as their home seems to get smaller and smaller!

My children are older now, but this would be a fun book to read (and sing) with a toddler. There are lots of different animals to point out and it would be fun to count them as well. This is a great find for anyone looking for a fun Christmas book for children!
