The Twelve Days of Christmas in Oregon
By Susan Blackaby (Author), Carolyn Conahan (Illustrator)
Format Hardcover Picture Book
Have a merry Oregon Christmas, from the rain forest to the desert to the mountains to the beach. Cousins Liz and Danny are seeing it all: they're camping near the Columbia River like Lewis and Clark, collecting "thunder eggs," and snowboarding near a volcano. With everything from busy beavers and howling wolves to tumbling waterfalls and food carts with yummy eats, Oregon is amazing!
