The illustrations are truly stunning in this book.  The water-colour-and-ink creations paint holiday magic on every page.  The artwork is magical, whimsical and sparkles. The original Christmas song is an accumulative one which means the verses build one on top of another.  Jeffers takes this familiar carol and makes it into a story with the song tucked inside and she changes the lyrics,"My true love gave to me," to "Santa gave to me."    Emma, our narrator, is up later than she should be on Christmas Eve and she pokes around the tree until she finds a gift addressed to her from Santa.  She carefully opens it up and discovers a beautiful, musical snow globe that plays the music for "The Twelve Days of Christmas."  She is so pleased and excited and in her enthusiastic joy she stumbles and the snow globe drops and cracks.  She is heartbroken and very upset.  She cradles the fragile, broken globe in her arms, curls up in her favourite chair and instantly falls asleep.  Santa comes and whisks her away in his sleigh and they observe the gifts of the song on their travels to the North Pole.  The twelve pipers piping announce Santa's arrival at his homestead and Emma and he enter, walk through his workshop and sit down in his room to sip cocoa and eat cookies together.  He asks Emma if she needs to share anything with him and she slowly hands over the her broken music box with an explanation of how it got that way.  She once again drifts off to sleep snuggled in Santa's arm chair and dreams that the reindeer are flying her through the air and back home.  On Christmas morning Emma wakes up to find a true Christmas miracle and she is very thankful and happy to know that all is well, and that her beloved gift that "Santa gave to me' has been restored.
