Clever rhymes and repetitions count down the twelve days of Christmas, as darlin' discovers a new surprise each day. Other Texas symbols filling the pages of this festive book include bucking broncos, tall Stetsons, and armadillos. After singing along to the classic Christmas tune, children will soon be counting their numbers with a Texas twang.
