School Library Journal - 10/01/2014 PreS-Gr 1—The artwork makes this book a true joy to read. The paintings, depicting a boy and girl as the gift giver and receiver, are detailed and colorful, becoming truly memorable as the presents accumulate. They depict people from different cultures when showing the maids a-milking, ladies dancing, lords a-leaping, pipers piping, and drummers drumming, dressed in costumes native to their lands. The last page shows all 78 gifts together and challenges readers to identify them. The book also provides the music for parents who are interested in the sheet music. Additional background information on the 12 days of Christmas and the possible origins of the well-known song are provided for those interested.—Graciela Gallegos, Los Angeles Public Library - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
