A fun twist on a favorite holiday song, and a truly dazzling countdown to Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas, my mommy gave to me, A puppy under the tree.

Kids will be singing with joy. What a magnificent Christmas present this beautiful book will be, with its shiny foil cover, spot lamination, spectacular images that count down to the holiday, and a clever children’s variation on a favorite song. Instead of the old-fashioned partridges, maids-a-milking, and lords-a-leaping, youngsters will find colorful hula hoops, wind-up toys, furry bears, trains-a-tooting, and jelly babies. Each adorable page builds on the one before, as the cumulative song grows and pictures of the fun gifts accumulate. The grand finale features tiny pictures of all the objects in the song, arranged from top to bottom in ascending order, forming a very special Christmas tree.
