12 Days of Christmas

I recently saw a USA Today article that showed the purchasing all of the items in the Twelve Days of Christmas song it would cost you over $100,000 this year.  In the spirit of saving you money, I have listed twelve wonderful children's books that you could purchase instead of things like drummers drumming or lords a-leaping.  Give the gift of reading this year for the bargain price of $134.21 (prices from Amazon.com).  Or better yet, stop in for a library card.  They're free.
