Book review: The Twelve Days of Christmas, by Alison Jay

Jay, Alison. The Twelve Days of Christmas.  Alfred A. Knopf, 2014. $17.99. ISBN 978-0-553-49661-1. Unp. Ages 1-6. P9 Q9

Jay Twelve Days of ChristmasThe well known Christmas carol is depicted nicely in this beautiful story of a couple who are on their way to a party and are collecting the items from the song for the party.  I enjoyed this book because on the pages where there are so many words the author wraps them around the edges of the page to make it fun and interesting.  I like how the story starts and ends with a simple pear.  The art work is beautiful and festive.
