    One thought on “The Twelve Days of Christmas”

    1. I ve always loved this song I like a lot of secular Christmas music, and this carol in particular is always fun So, I had to sing vs read this book.This is a nearly perfect gift book The detailed and rich artwork is absolutely gorgeous and it s fun to look for the all 12 days worth of presents on the pages The sheet music is included in the back, something I was hoping would be the case when I was reading singing, and there is a fascinating author s note at the end of the book that addresses the [...]

    2. Ms Long s illustrations are time consuming in the best sense of the term I could take in the two turtle doves pages all afternoon

    3. Do not read this book if you are short on time The illustrations are AMAZING We loved finding all the gifts on each page Read with Naomi Calvin Lincoln loved it too.

    4. More artistic but almost as overwhelming as Jan Brett I love the little touches like collie birds But I could not find every previous image in each page, for example the collie birds seemed to be given short shrift after their spread And no answer key So, imo it fails as a puzzle book, which frustrates me enough that I can t give it a full five stars Well, actually, even worse is that it was 100% Caucasian Which is ridiculous, and wrong, and takes another star off.

    5. Printing this song as a picture book is pure evil in my book as an aunt caregiver kids always love it want to have it sung to them, often repeatedly If you re not much of a singer, easily tire of this particular Christmas carol like me , it s sheer torture Buuuut They love it so much And I really love the sumptuous illustrations, so at least that makes it slightly less painful.

    6. This is my most favourite Twelve Days of Christmas book I love the illustrations and especially how as each day comes all the previous days pictures are hidden in the current day s picture and you get to seek for them.

    7. Beautiful illustrations bring the classic song to life in a well put together book, great for the holidays.

    8. All the hidden images were a little excessive but the interpretations of each gift was refreshing The roses were stunning.

    9. The images are incredibly regal And what s fun, each page as the previous gifts hidden within it, so be sure to look for them Ages 4 8 christmasLike my reviews I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too These reports give a complete break down of everything in the book, so you ll know just how clean it is or isn t I also have Clean Guides downloadable PDFs which enable you to clean up your book before reading it Visit my website The Book Radar.

    10. This beautifully illustrated book could keep a child busy for hours, as each item named in the song appears on each page on which it is mentioned Reading the book through just to sing the song is not nearly enough to get the full experience This is a book that truly has to be savored to be enjoyed This review also appears on my blog, Read at Home Mom.

    11. Review via Cracking the CoverAlong with Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas is one of the most retold, reimagined holiday tales The quantity of varying books makes it that much harder to find the truly amazing versions Among those amazing versions Laurel Long s newly released interpretation of The Twelve Days of Christmas While the words of the loved song are the same it s the intricate illustrations that make this book truly stand out Laurel s tale takes place in a R [...]

    12. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous I can only echo what others have said and say that this is an outstandingly beautiful, detailed picture book representation of The Twelve Days of Christmas carol Though the pictures can be enjoyed on one level for the sheer beauty, those with careful attention can also pick out hidden pictures and some symbolism, too Long s note at the end explains some of the possible origins of the song and also her interpretation as reflected in her illustrations I could go on and [...]

    13. I love this book It is divine in every way Firstly, the presentation Hardcover with a dust jacket and one that has all of the illustration in miniature black and whites.Secondly, the illustrations to die for swooning and the quality of the paper they are printed on so shiny and smooth and lickable yep, they look so good I want to taste them Thirdly, a lovely presentation of the story song about the Twelve Days of Christmas The story rates very lowly for me in Christmas books I just NEED visually [...]

    14. I loved, loved, loved this beautiful truly book with the lyrics of the song combined with intricate illustrations including cumulative images to find on each luscious page, the song and music in the back, and the interesting author s notes for example, that the verses were first published as a children s book in England in 1790 Laurel Long s gift to us is her sublime, artistic interpretation of this classic, a book to share with everyone during this Christmas season

    15. So beautiful and incredibly detailed Illustrations bring to life the text of the favorite carol and feature so many small details that readers could revisit this book time and again and walk away having discovered something new The ornate borders on each page and the fine details in these pictures bring to mind Jan Brett s work, though this artist shines all on her own Great for Christmas displays and certainly gifts.

    16. I almost just put this book out on the shelf without looking at it Luckily for me, I flipped it open to have a peek, and then set it back in my pile to give a detailed read.The illustrations are beautiful They re perfect I would pay money to have some of them framed and hung in my house I can t get over how lovely they are.The artist also had some great fun hiding the previous gifts on each page, so it makes for a fun game even after the text has been read.

    17. The Christmas carol is beautifully illustrated in this search and find edition All of the gifts from previous verses can be found on the current page, but are hidden very well An answer key on the backside of the jacket allow those who just can t find something to have a hint A beautiful book that would work best in a one on one reading session or for a child to look at alone to try to find the objects.

    18. I adore this book one of my all time favorite Christmas books The illustrations are gorgeous and it s fun to find the hidden images on each page Random piece of Xmas info in the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, the actual word is four colly or collie birds Colly ie means black so they are talking about blackbirds Also, the five golden rings is referencing ring necked birds The first seven gifts are all types of birds thank you Snopes

    19. The illustrations in this traditional folk song are simply gorgeous Jewel tones, borders, and patterns fill the pages with beauty There are also hidden images within each page some from previous pages The inside of the dust jacket has blueprints of each page revealing where the hidden elements are Such a fun book to look at

    20.

    21. This beautifully illustrated version of The Twelve Days of Christmas offers background notes on the songs origins and meaning, an intereptation by the illustrator of her work as well as the music The illustrations are fun to find the hidden verses in each picture A beautiful classic Christmas book.

    22. I borrowed this book from the library because I love Laurel Long s work, and I was not disappointed in fact, I was surprised Not only are the illustrations breath takingly beautiful as I expected , but hidden on each page are all the gifts from the previous verses of the song and they re tricky This book will keep an adult or a child occupied for quite some time.

    23. Beautiful illustrations They remind me of all the details in a picture book illustrated by K Y Craft So pretty Even if I get tired of singing the song in my head, I will still look at the illustrations just to look at the pretty details.

    24. I wish that this book had won a Caldecott it is the most richly illustrated book that I ve seen in years The Twelve Days of Christmas are illustrated in with hidden pictures that children and adults alike will gaze over for hours Definitely a perfect gift for kids who love art

    25. Very interesting take on it Good notes at the back on the origins of the song not really a pear tree and the artist s inspiration It would be fun for kid s that like the eye spy type activities as she puts lots of hidden things in her very detailed pictures.

    26. The text is familiar of course, but the gorgeous illustrations, evocative of pre Raphaelite paintings, make this book special The research note on the history and origins of the song is a great feature also.
