The Twelve Days of Christmas
Jan Brett

Review by: Ellen Dragonetti

     A true feast for the eyes is Jan Brett's The Twelve Days of Christmas. Each page is a beautiful tapestry of art work all depicting the famous 12 days of Christmas. It's difficult not to burst into song on each page as your child learns the countdown of charming creatures.
     The editor's note on the back page explains what the 12 days of Christmas really are. Most of us don't know the history of this beloved Christmas song that dates back to the 13th century, and how it came to be.
     Jan Brett is truly a gifted artist with a flair for detail. As you scan the borders of each page you will find a story within the story of families preparing for Christmas. The sentiment of "Merry Christmas" is written in 11 languages for a multicultural touch-children love hearing different languages and may even learn to repeat many of the ways to say "Merry Christmas".
     The Twelve Days of Christmas by Jan Brett is rich with holiday tradition and beautiful enough for your coffee table. Maybe we can even bring back it's original use as a popular family game sung and played on the 12th night of the celebration and see who can remember each verse in the proper order-good luck!
