FREE Catholic Classes
"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.
