The Twelve Dinosaurs of Christmas

Kane Miller. Oct. 2023. 32p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781684647378.
Gr 1-5–A fun twist on the classic holiday tune “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Starting with, “On the first day of Christmas, my grandpa gave to me...a Santasaurus and her dino baby,” and all the way up to the twelfth day, readers can sing along to the familiar tune. A helpful pronunciation key in the back of the book aids with the trickier dinosaur names—this makes the book perfect for parents to read and sing to younger children. However, the book is more suitable for children ages six and up who can navigate some of the trickier names on their own. Darcy’s illustrations perfectly match the amusing situations and will captivate readers with the dinosaurs’ antics as they explore the holiday festivities.
VERDICT A fun addition to any public or school library.
