The Twelve Days of Christmas - Digital Style


Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers...the place to be when the holiday spirit fills you with joy and happiness...and a desire to read something equally seasonal.

Today's featured title fits that bill most definitely and behold, the gifts on which it is based would actually start being passed out tomorrow so can we say, perfect timing?  ^_^  All a part of my master plan.  Hehe. As this is a short read already, I won't drag my introduction out unnecessarily because really, this is a book/song that almost everyone has encountered at some point or another, just made for a new generation.  Today's book of choice is...


Illustrated by
Bridget Brighton

That's right.  I didn't miss the author information, it simply lists the illustrator because while the story within hasn't changed from days of old, the illustrations have.  Created to amuse the younger set while still being visually appealing in a simplistic form to adult readers, this is the "12 Days" for the electronic generation...you know, those born with an ereader, tablet, or smartphone in their hand.

The images are crisp and clear and utilize all the seasons palette has to offer.  The "day of" number is presented front and center with the "gift" of that day represented in a smaller tagged on image.  My favorite was probably the "9 ladies dancing" with the image of a ballerina tip toeing across the page; my least favorite was the "11 pipers piping".  How can I have a least favorite?  Well, here's the deal on that...while the little boy blowing his horn was adorable, he was blowing his horn or rather a trumpet...which is not in fact a "pipe" piping.

All in all, a quick seasonal read that can be enjoyed by one and all.  The length of the book is cut down by the fact that it doesn't repeat the gifts given previously every time a new one is introduced but with the swipe of a finger, the click of a mouse or tap of a screen, you can easily relive each day in the same way the song of old dictates.  This ebook is available now for your viewing pleasure, just click on over to Amazon to snag a copy for your holiday reading list.

Until next time...happy reading!
