    One thought on “The Twelve Days of Christmas”

    1. I definitely wanted to read this book before the end of the year. I don’t enjoy the holidays and want them over when they’re over. However, I do love this song and have enjoyed a couple other books that feature it.And in this rendition the artwork is intricate and beautiful and colorful and marvelous in every way. I could spend many hours looking at all the details. The expression on the woman’s face toward the end is a hoot. Her cat’s interest in all those birds is so funny. And it’s [...]

    2. Being the Jane Ray fan that I am, I admit to being completely biased in my review. I could stare at the illustrations all day. This book is quite simply the lyrics of the song Twelve Days of Christmas but is paired with some beautiful art work. The colors are bright and cheerful and their is the usual whimsy to Ray's work. I enjoy having many of my favorite Christmas songs in picture book form and this was a welcome addition to my collection.

    3. Well, besides my less than desirable version as I sang this book to my children who could go wrong with the The Twelve Days of Christmas?

    4. Grades K-6 Even if you have other versions of the carol, this is a worthy one to add to your collection. Jane Ray's illustrations bring the folk song to life beautifully and with a quiet humor. Along a busy row of townhouses, a woman receives her gifts from a secret admirer each day. The various feathered and fowled gifts in the first half of the song are nicely done, but it' the later gifts that readers will want to pore over. The nine ladies dancing are a flapperesque bunch that seem to be doi [...]

    5. This was such a fun book to read! It was a combination of a song book of The Twelve Days of Christmas with detailed, beautifully drawn, repetitive illustrations that felt a bit like "Where's Waldo" with much to examine and appreciate. By the end of the book, each apartment introduced on the first day of Christmas had received the allocated gift for the day (with opportunities for readers to match the locations while counting and identifying cleverly drawn objects). The more you look at it, the m [...]

    6. I like the idea of students being able to relate to the twelve days before Christmas as counting down for a math lesson and it actually happening. The students would have daily activities that they can create their art and math to decorate the classroom, as well as for "Secret Santa" gifts and other activities.

    7. The text/lyrics are traditional but the illustrations are Jane Ray's and they are lovely.

    8. This book is great getting close to the winter break. Have the students countdown starting with twelve days to the break and subtracting each day until then.

    9. Delightful illustrations! I loved the attention to detail and that she used all different kinds of people to populate the book.

    10. Great illustrations accompany the classic song. But "reading" this song made me wonder why in the world this song is so popular?
