The Twelve Days of Summer

On my first day of summer, the sunshine brought to me… And so the delight begins. Page by page, creatures gather in a beautiful garden, celebrating summer and the life cycle.

Patterned on the popular carol, The Twelve Days of Summer takes readers on a joyous journey into summer, from the first discovery of three eggs in a sparrow’s nest to the day when those eggs hatch. Readers will pore over the pictures, searching for that fifth bumblebee, that tenth crow, and for the thoughtfully chosen toy that turns up on each page: a parachute with the goatsbeard seeds, a fan with the ruffed grouse… This is a story to delight and engage children and adults alike.
