Why have one state worth of fun when you can have SIX! Grace and her cousin Camden enjoy a New England holiday, from big-city Boston to tiny coastal and mountain towns in Maine and Vermont. From lighthouse hopping to moose spotting, it’s an unforgettable trip!
Our Thoughts: This book was a huge hit in our house. First of all being a life long New Englander (a "Maine-ah") I loved seeing the different local places referenced within the pages as did the kids. Each page is dedicated to a letter back home to Mom and Dad from Grace as she describes her visit to each area and state in New England. The trip starts off in Boston where Grace is met by her Aunt, Uncle and Cousin at Logan Airport and they take the "T". This was met with excitement from the kids because "Hey, we've done that!". And so it went, each letter contained highlights of each of the 6 New England states (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts and the facing page gives a "Twelve Days of Christmas" countdown.
Naturally our favorite page was the one focused on Maine where they explored rocky coasts and tidal pools, dined on lobster rolls and explored our hometown, Portland...
Not only is The Twelve Days of Christmas in New England a charming holiday tale but it is a wonderful way to introduce kiddos to local geography in a way that is both informative and engaging. Get this book in preparation for the holidays HERE.
