Teckentrup follows the traditional format of the Twelve Days of Christmas song, sharing page-by-page how two elves celebrate their relationship with gifts every day. Though the words of the song are familiar to most, it's Teckentrup's beautiful illustrations and exquisite cut-outs which help accentuate the loving tale.
Younger readers will especially appreciate exploring the cut outs, and will develop a new appreciation for the story overall. Highly recommend for readers, particularly as gifts for younger readers.
