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.

An entertaining holiday read! Pizzoli gives picture book life to a holiday classic. What's not to love about this book in picture book form. It's the perfect book for signing along to, or just reading it out loud. One of my favorite illustrations is the look on elephant's dad's face when she receives the gift of 5 golden rings. haha

Pizzoli's brightly colored illustrations, which reminded me a bit of Richard Scarry's illustrations (whom I loved as a kid), and sturdier pages will make this book perfect for young readers. I image this book will quickly become a family favorite during the Christmas season. I enjoyed this book and I love the matching festive color scheme on the cover and through out the book. It definitely adds a lot to the overall feel of the book. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
