On the 1st day o Yuletide,
My true luve gied tae me,
A reid robin in a rowan tree.

Take a deep breath and prepare for a journey through all twelve days of Yuletide with a cast of skaters skooshin, lassies birlin, sheep a-shooglin, and the all-important five gowden rings.

The stunningly beautiful illustrations bring this Scots version of the ever-popular Christmas song to life in vivid detail. Inspired by the traditional verse, this adaptation features easy-to-understand (and pronounce) Scots words and creatures, including hoolets (owls) and bonnie doos (beautiful doves).

Perfect for children and parents to read and sing along to throughout the festive season.

(Ages 4-7 years)
