ReadItDaddy's Booky Advent Calendar Day 1: "The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Brian Wildsmith (OUP / Oxford Children's Books)

Oh yes indeed, it's that time of the year again, a couple of dozen sleeps until Christmas - and once again we're wheeling out an awesome selection of christmassy titles for our December review schedule. Some brand new and never seen before, some well loved classics that have always been in our reading pile around this most wonderful time of the year.

Bring on...


And bring on the book behind Door Number 1 as we take a look at a gorgeous cloth-bound new edition reprint of Brian Wildsmith's timeless version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" - out now from OUP / Oxford Children's Books.

The perfect gift for every day of Christmas, Brian takes us on an enchanting journey through The Twelve Days of Christmas (a rhyme that we somehow still manage to get wrong, so it's rather handy to have a gorgeous book to refer to so we can sing it right at last!) 

This illustrated version of the Christmas classic almost feels like it's ready-wrapped and ready to put under the tree, clad in the most gorgeous cloth and foil cover, absolutely as festive as heck!

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" by Brian Wildsmith is out now, published by OUP / Oxford Children's Books (kindly supplied for review).
