Synopsis

"On the first day of Christmas mis amigos brought to me: a piñata for the piñon tree"


Spice up Christmas with a Southwestern spin! Celebrate the holidays with Philemon Sturges' lively adaptation of the classic Christmas carol, The Twelve Days of Christmas. Instead of leaping lords and drummers drumming, our favorite friends from Readerville bring us cowgirls yodelin', poinsettias bloomin', and much more! This vivacious rendition, accompanied by Ashley Wolff's vibrant illustrations, features all the joyous characters in the song and a special recipe for bizcochitos, cookies that can be found in every New Mexican home during Christmastime.
