The classic holiday carol “The 12 Days of Christmas” takes on a Newfoundland and Labrador twist in this cute children’s book. Instead of a partridge in a pear tree, the first day of Christmas brings a puffin by the sea; other Newfoundland and Labrador-themed “gifts” include caribou, Norsemen, mummers – and even caroling codfish! Plus, the author provides interesting background information on each of the 12 gifts.
It highlights the unique qualities of this Canadian province in a fun, heart filled and educational manner. With the help of the whimsical puffin character and beautiful illustrations by Derek Peddle , Gina Noordhof’s first book will be certain to please young and old. It will appeal to people from around the world who want to learn about the province and those who are proud of their birthplace and its unique history and nature. This is a first in a series of books that will exhibit each provinces qualities.
