On the first day of Christmas my parents gave to me . . . a holiday book about my very own state! Welcome to Christmas in Missouri, the Show Me State—and Cody’s all ready to get a grand tour from his cousin Laila. Together, they’ll count bald eagles, spelunk in stalactite-filled caverns, eat Kansas City-style barbecue, visit the Pony Express Museum, and have the best time. Cody receives some amazing gifts, too, from 1 dogwood tree with a bluebird to 12 tiny tin trains.
