Booky Advent Calendar Day 9 - "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Britta Teckentrup (Little Tiger Press)

The Twelve Days of Christmas

Written and Illustrated by
Britta Teckentrup

Published by Little Tiger Press

A real christmas treat, here's Little Tiger Press's version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" presented as a luxurious hardback book with gorgeous cutaway 'reveal' pages, illustrated throughout in a festive christmassy style by Britta Teckentrup. Each page slowly reveals each of the 12 days of christmas as you flick through, with fun characters and animals and all the favourites from the yuletide rhyme.

It's always been a tradition to dig out our own books based around The Twelve Days of Christmas, but this is a gorgeous and beautifully presented new one for us to add to our christmassy collection - and we thoroughly recommend you add it to yours too!

Charlotte's best bit: Charlotte has a habit of shouting "FIVE GOLD RINGS!" as loudly as possible whenever we read this out loud. Which is fine by me!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Love the slowly revealed rhyme as you work towards everything being shown at the end (and the partridge in a pear tree sitting neatly in the middle. Gorgeous!)
