We obviously all know Christmas carol and counting song that has become a holiday favorite. 🙂 Jan Brett is famous for her beautiful illustrations, and her version of “Twelve Days” not just delivers exquisite images but also, as her website says, “a love story, a family’s busy Christmas preparations, ‘Merry Christmas’ in eleven languages, and a veritable menagerie of charming creatures.”
