momstown loves books with Canadian content - and this awesome twist on the classic '12 days of Christmas' is a hit with all ages!
Our partners at Scholastic Canada introduced us to this book hot off the presses, in time for the holiday season. Porcupine in a Pine Tree is a Canadian 12 days of Christmas story, written by Helene Becker.
From the first page, you will be delighted with the clever and Canadian twists on the classic song. We have two caribou, three beaver tails, four calling moose, and my personal favourite...
Five Stanley Cups!
I read this to my four year-old and although I'm not sure he remembers the 'original' 12 days of Christmas song, he LOVED this one. We sang it about four times as we read it over and over. The illustrations are by Werner Zimmerman and they are perfect - whimsical and entertaining.
I won't give it away - you'll have to read it yourself to find out how Canadian all 12 days of Christmas are!
If you're a momstown member, you'll be reading this at your December kids' book club and have a chance to win your own copy!
