Step right in to a rootin', tootin', cowboy Christmas extravaganza
Drawing on her skills as a children's educator, librarian, and fiber artist, Susan Holt Kralovansky interprets the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas with Lone Star charm. Start with a mockingbird in an oak tree; throw in iconic armadillos, prickly pears, boots, and longhorns all illustrated in rustic fiber-art collages composed of Southwest-inspired textures of burlap, rope, and colorful cotton. Included are bonus pages of fun facts about these symbols of the great state of Texas. A wonderful book for classroom interactions or family reading, this unique presentation of a familiar rhyme will draw in young readers and keep them enthralled long after the last 'dillo scurries off to bed.
