The Twelve Days of Winter
It’s wintertime! That means it’s the season for mittens, snow, and twelve days of surprises. In this high-energy, school-loving class, the teacher introduces a new winter activity every day. Three penguins—Antarctic fun! Four weather words—brrrr! And twelve treats for tasting—YUM!
As the teacher’s gifts add up—teddy bears, paper snowflakes, sugarcubes—and the days get colder, the classroom is transformed into wintery chaos. Are all the winter surprises still inside? Count along with the class to find out.

Once again, this team has used the familiar tune as the framework for a cumulative counting verse, this time with winter activities both indoors and out as the focal point…Each of the eight children in this busy classroom has a distinct personality, revealed through meticulous and consistent attention to detail on every spread. The child obsessed with horses takes every opportunity to make them, even as snowflake cutouts; another child dances throughout, and in the final spread creates a version of Degas’ Little Dancer out of snow….A surefire choice to spice up the dreariest winter day.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
