Alaska's 12 Days of Summer by Pat Chamberlin-Calamar (Author), Shannon Cartwright (Illustrator)
The infectious rhythms of the classic song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," inspired this clever and charming counting book. Here, the famous "partridge in a pear tree" becomes a "black bear in a spruce tree," while the fifth day of summer in Alaska yields everything from swans and wood frogs to bald eagles and moose. Author Pat Chamberlin-Calamar has spent every summer in Alaska since 1985, and through the book's witty repetitions she conjures a vibrant world of Alaskan fauna. Alaska's 12 Days of Summer is a book that children will want to sing along with again and again.
