Description

On the fifth day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me Five Highland flings!
Four coal seams,
Three lobster traps,
Two fiddle tunes,
And a Bluenose in at Pier Three.

“The Twelve Days of Christmas” gets a taste of Nova Scotian revelry in this energetic retelling by storyteller Bruce Nunn. With Doretta Groenendyk's charming and funny illustrations, readers young and old will want to read–and sing!–this version of the carol every Christmas.
