The 12 Days of Christmas

Cabrera, Jane. The 12 Days of Christmas. , 2013.

Jane Cabrera has adapted the famous Christmas song, The 12 Days of Christmas and has added new words.  The song has been adapted to talk about animals celebrating Christmas.  It's a modern version of a classic folk song.
The author uses the song, The 12 Days of Christmas, as the book is being read you want to read the book to the melody.
The book has a lively acrylic illustrations that help bring to life the words while reading.
I would recommend this book to other kids to read.  The reason I say this is because it is a modern take of the song, The 12 Days of Christmas, children are able to understand.  Most kids today have no idea why you would want pipers piping, so Jan Cabrera has created a book that is more simplistic and kid friendly that children of today would understand better.
This book would appeal to ages 2-6 years old.
