Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-The traditional song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" gets a new treatment in this lighthearted picture book. With artwork by a popular Alaskan illustrator, it shows the typical fauna-moose, black and brown bears, caribou, bald eagles, sandhill cranes, and even mosquitoes-cavorting under the midnight sun. As the cumulative verses unfold, Cartwright's spreads become more and more crowded with activity and interesting details, such as the footprints of some of the animals along river and pond banks. Meanwhile, small-print, parallel text relates facts about the depicted animals and their central Alaska habitat. The illustrations show a landscape with a veritable traffic jam of wildlife, but it's all in fun. The effort to cram all the animals in the 11th and 12th days creates some awkward design logistics, but the kids will not complain. This book might be classified as fluff for the tourist souvenir stands, but kids will see it as fun whether they find it in their library or receive it as a souvenir of their grandparents' trip north.

Format: Hardcover
This is a good book for youngsters who have mastered the basics of reading. (My kindergartener enjoyed it and only needed help here and there with some of the longer, unfamiliar animal names). The story is phrased similarly to the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas". Its repetitive nature is a good way to help youngsters practice reading longer words. It also encorporates counting/numbers and names of animals found in Alaska. At the end of the book there's even written music of the song tune, complete with these "new" Alaskan lyrics. The illustrations are colorful and a treat to look at. This book would be a great addition to a school library or any child's personal collection.

There are tons of cheesy Alaskan books out there, but this one is well done. We give this one as a gift often, as we live in Alaksa and the kids of friends and family are often curious about Alaska. This story goes with the 12 days of Christmas song.... Be warned that the song is catchy and fun, the kids just might not stop singing it!

This Alaskan born loves this book. Want my kids to have a sense of Alaska, this book was another great intro to the wildlife there. The illustrations are very cute. Every page has all the previous animals included, making it a fun little game to find all the animals...REALL wish there was a "12 Days..." for every season...

What a fun book! Time constraints or younger children? Quickly read the book (challenge you to TRY to not sing it. It's so catchy you just have to).

Older readers can read the facts about Alaska printed on the pages under the song lyrics.

Greatly illustrated.
