December is going by in a blur and I finally had a chance to post my reviews of all the great new Christmas books for 2017. One of our favorites is The 12 Days of Christmas by @gregpizzoli. This picture book adaptation of the traditional Christmas song is hilarious. Greg Pizzoli’s comical illustrations tell the story of an elephant suitor delivering presents to his true love while the parental elephant looks on in growing dismay at the assortment of gifts. The elephant children are delighted with the new pets while the parent is seen watering the partridge tree, carrying bulk bird seed for all the new birds, and becoming more and more despondent with each new addition. Meanwhile, the pages fill up quickly with French hens wearing adorable little berets, eight mice carrying glasses of milk, and ten frogs leaping off the pages. As the parental elephant finally bursts into tears at the myriad of creatures now inhabiting their home, the whole gang comforts the grownup with a hug and the pear from the original pear tree. In a humorous conclusion, the last illustration shows the partridge in a pear tree surrounded by 76 stocking waiting to be filled by Santa.

Reading this book could not be more fun. It is a great song to sing and my kids loved chiming in during the “5 Golden Rings” refrain. As the number of gifts grew, we would sing it faster and faster making this a high energy read that always ended in a fit of giggles. Definitely not a good bedtime story, but an absolutely amusing holiday read aloud! (Ages 3 – 8)

"And then I thought: Bring it on. There’s no place like anywhere but here." -Danielle Paige, Dorothy Must Die. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I adore retellings of stories. I always like to see how others will take a story and make it their own. It's chilly outside so I will snuggle up with my #hogwarts socks and #starwars fuzzy pants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#lilbookishcheer #booklover #bookstagram #bookworm #bibliophile #reader #booksofinstagram #literaryadventure #bookaddict #booknerdigans #igreads #bookfeaturepage #bookphotography #librariansofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookish
