聖誕節轉眼間又到了,每年這個時候我們總會反覆的聽一些聖誕歌曲,Twelve days of Christmas 是我很喜歡的一首聖誕歌,這是一首來自英國的耶誕歌曲~而美眉也有一本Twelve days of Christmas的繪本(illustrated by Rachel Griffin, Published by Barefoot Books, Inc.),書中的圖片全部都用刺繡的方式描繪出這十二天收到的禮物,非常細膩精緻,我愛不釋手,是少數讓我想珍藏的一本繪本~

在聖誕節來臨的時候聽這首歌特別有感覺,除了旋律簡單好聽之外,我最喜歡歌詞中描寫的那些令人驚喜的禮物,一棵住著鷓鴣的梨樹、三隻法國來的母雞、五個金色戒指、九個打鼓的鼓手、十一個會跳舞的舞孃、﹍,多麼有想像力啊~想像每天都能收到這麼特別的禮物,心情也不禁雀躍了起來,這真是一首充滿了Christmas Spirit的歌曲~美眉小的時候,每次一聽到這首歌,她跟Daddy兩個人總是一口氣的唱完這十二天的歌詞,唱得上氣不接下氣,實在可愛極了!

書中所附贈的CD是我聽過最棒的一個版本,跟大家一起分享吧~

  

這也是一首適合全家一起學唱的歌曲,尤其對四歲以上的小孩來說,不僅可以認識數字的順序、數字倒數,還可以認識很多簡單的單字,不過當初這本書是由國外帶回來的,台灣好像找不到這本書,有興趣可以到Amazon找看看囉~(Amazon 連結按這裡)
