My son loves ELMO. We sat on the floor and "sang" this book twice and laughed! The book is so much fun. It's definitely a keeper!

This is a great little Sesame Street twist on the 12 Days of Christmas. It's a board book and it's quite small (maybe 4 inches by 6 inches) but the verses are really cute. The illustrations are cute...a fun book to read/sing with the kiddos.

I bought this book for my two year old niece for Christmas and she absolutely loved it! It's a board book which is great for toddlers and it is also the perfect size for her little hands. Highly recommend for any little kids who love Elmo!

My 26 month old granddaughter received this book a few days ago and she loves it.The verses are cleverly written and if your child/grandchild likes Elmo they will like this book.It is a smaller size board book which also makes it convenient to stick in a purse or diaper bag.

Format: Board book
The rhythm of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is preserved in this sparkling, funny, clever re-telling by Elmo, the red monster up in that Sesame Street neighborhood tree. Elmo appears in all 12 scenes, including beret on head, with his two French friends marching cheerfully with the tricolor flying.

To me, this is a perfect version for the 1 to 3 year olds because

--it is short enough to hold their interest

--the board book is 4 l/2 inches x 6 inches, easy to bring along

--while sturdy with glossy paper & heavy-duty boards, it is light enough for small hands to hold

--the sounds follow "The Twelve Days of Christmas" & without being over-cutsey, tickled my funny-bone most happily, not only for example, those three French friends but also the four calling monsters, five golden things, and on to the 12 monsters drumming

--the pictures are merry and bright, with cheerful colors and some of Sesame Street's favorite characters such as Oscar the Grouch and of course Cookie Monster

--it is well-priced yet likely to be a legacy book

Any reader alerts? Children may enjoy this more if they also hear "The Twelve Days of Christmas". And---this is may be just me---I wonder if there is another word instead of "monsters" that could be used now and then, such as "friends". Readers can substitute easily whatever word they wish and maybe even add to the laughter?

Highly and delightedly recommended

Great read, even for the smallest of tykes. May find yourself singing. Must have if your child's a fan of Elmo.

This book has fun lyrics and bright colorful pictures. My 20 month old granddaughter enjoys it. The lyrics are easy to memorize and it's a song you can sing throughout your day, while in the car, or at bedtime. It's a sturdy book, just the right size for toddler hands, and I highly recommend it.

My 16-month-old loves Elmo, so I bought this to read to her around Christmas. Each page is a little long for her age, but it features some of her favorite Sesame Street characters and is a cute rhyme. I think she'll like it better over the next few years.
