Introducing The Twelve Days of Christmas in Tennessee by Alice Faye Duncan and Mary Uhles

Usually when I profile a book on this blog, it's because of the author. In this case, though, I'm highlighting a new release by a very talented illustrator. Mary Uhles is a fellow Middle Tennessean who has a very impressive portfolio of work...and her latest book, written by Alice Faye Duncan, reminds us that the most wonderful time of the year is on the way! Scroll down to read all about it and get your copy.


The Volunteer state is GREAT! When Carly visits her cousin Teddy in Tennessee for Christmas, she discovers how amazing it is. She hikes the Great Smoky Mountains, dances to bluegrass music, tastes Nashville’s famous hot chicken, and meets more than one Elvis Presley. Every day, Teddy gives her a special Tennessee gift, from 12 rockers rocking and 11 eagles nesting to a mockingbird in a tulip poplar tree.
