From the writer and illustrator behind the best-selling "The Twelve Days of Kindergarten," this rambunctious and clever book will entertain both in and out of school.
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.
