Illustrator Hutto captured the Oklahoma sites beautifully in her vibrantly colored drawings. A California transplant, she said she never realized how much the state had to offer until she moved here 15 years ago.

“When I came here, I was so surprised to find what a rich culture it has,” Hutto said. “The people are so friendly, and I enjoy learning about the state's history. There is so much to cherish here, and I am happy to call it my home.”

“The Twelve Days of Christmas in Oklahoma” can be purchased at Best of Books in Edmond, Full Circle Bookstore and The Learning Tree in Oklahoma City and Occasions in Norman. It can also be found at and

A few additional new Christmas books from Sterling Publishing would make good additions to holiday reading lists.

“The Great Christmas Crisis,” written by Kim Norman and illustrated by Jannie Ho, is written to the rhythm of “'Twas the Night Before Christmas.” In it, Santa goes undercover as an elf to help solve a production problem in Santa's North Pole toy factory.

In “A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas,” written by Philip Yates and illustrated by Sebastia Serra, a cabin boy receives mysterious gifts each of the 12 days of Christmas when he is left alone to guard the pirate ship during Christmastide.

“Christmas Magic,” written by Kirsten Hall, puts magic at a child's fingertips with photos that transform with the pull of a tab. Beautifully illustrated by Simon Mendez, the book has Christmas scenes that offer a Norman Rockwell-esque vision of the holidays.
