Author-Illustrator Spotlight Kim Michelle Toft

Meet Author-Illustrator Kim Michelle Toft as she talks about her beautiful Christmas picture book The Twelve Underwater Days of Christmas.

A modern, underwater version of the original song, The Twelve Underwater Days of Christmas is a celebration of marine life as much as of Christmas.

Kim’s beautiful silk paintings are perfect for illustrating the underwater world, and the book provides a vehicle for Kim to share her passion for marine ecology and conservation.

Read the book to your children and use it to spark conversations about conservation as well as Christmas, and to ignite an interest in the underwater world and its inhabitants.

Print the interview to display in your classroom or include in a class book about authors and illustrators.
