Publisher's Weekly Review of Native American Twelve Days of Christmas

Native American Twelve Days of Christmas 

by Gary Robinson (Cherokee/Choctaw descent) and illustrated by Jesse T. Hummingbird (Cherokee National Treasure)

"Employing the source material’s foundation, Robinson adapts the lyrics to include culturally significant actions, items, and entities (“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… a blanket for my tipi”). Straightforward text contextualizes each adapted lyric (“Today, Indian trade blankets are still prized by Native peoples”), while Hummingbird depicts wide-eyed characters engaging in yuletide scenes."
