The Twelve Days of Christmas - Acknowledgements
"THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS BOOK" is complete in itself, giving ideas for the celebration of Christmastide in the home, the parish, school, and apostolic groups.
In addition, however, a companion "THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS KIT" is also available, which provides actual materials for a variety of "things to make" for children young and old.
Text and art for both book and kit are the work of "The Grailville Writing Center," Loveland, Ohio.
