Description

Step right in to a rootin', tootin', cowboy Christmas extravaganza!



Drawing on her skills as a children's educator, librarian, and fiber artist, Susan Holt Kralovansky interprets the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas with Lone Star charm. Start with a mockingbird in an oak tree; throw in iconic armadillos, prickly pears, boots, and longhorns all illustrated in rustic fiber-art collages composed of Southwest-inspired textures of burlap, rope, and colorful cotton. Included are bonus pages of fun facts about these symbols of the great state of Texas. A wonderful book for classroom interactions or family reading, this unique presentation of a familiar rhyme will draw in young readers and keep them enthralled long after the last 'dillo scurries off to bed.

Flap copy

"Susan Holt Kralovansky is a master re-teller of tales, and Twelve Cowboys Ropin' is no exception. She uses kid-friendly details ('dillos digging, boots a scootin') and an obvious love for her home state to update this holiday classic. Even the collaged illustrations have a Texas twang! A book born to be read aloud."
--Liz Garton Scanlon, author of the 2010 Caldecott Award winner All the World



"This sing-along tribute to Texas will rope in young readers and have them kickin' their boots to the familiar tune--it's that much fun! And I learned a lot to boot."
--Don Tate, author of It Jes' Happened: When Bill Traylor Started to Draw, an Ezra Jack Keats New Writer Honor Book
