Overview

Discover the Christian truth concealed in the familiar carol The 12 Days of Christmas. In this beautifully illustrated book, you'll learn the history of the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany (January 6th) and the commemoration of the gifts given on each day.
The story is told that during a time when the Church of England forbid any teaching of Christ other than their own, many parents who refused to join the church also used the song to teach their children in secret.
Now you and your child, age four to eight, can uncover the meaning of this beloved song as you learn the wonderful story of Christ redemption for all of us.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another classic song occasions The 12 Days of Christmas by Helen Haidle, illus. by Laura Knorr. Haidle associates the lyrics with religious themes (for example, she asks readers to let the five golden rings remind them of the first five books of the Bible), and pairs each with a quote from the Bible. Gold accents in Knorr's art create a gifty feel. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
