Discover the Christian truth in the familiar Christmas carol, The 12 Days of Christmas. In this beautifully illustrated book, you’ll learn the history of the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany (January 6) and the commemoration of the gifts given on each day.

The story is told that during a time when the Church of England forbade any teaching of Christ other than their own, many parents who refused to join the church used this song to teach their children in secret.

Now you and your children can uncover the meaning of this beloved song as you learn the wonderful story of Christ’s redemption for all of us.
