    Can My Next Birthday Party Be Like This One?

    This book delivers on the promise in its jacket cover with Rose¿s enchanting, lilting rhymes and Munsinger¿s uproarious and lively watercolor illustrations of a zoo full of animals putting on a birthday party for a delighted young boy. It is ¿a birthday present to open again and again.¿ The irresistible rhymes include: ¿¿But where to begin?¿ asked the shy tamarin. `Blow up balloons.¿ puffed the raccoons.¿ Laughter or at least a broad smile will erupt when this verse is read in its full-spread illustration of eight raccoons eagerly blowing up colorful birthday balloons and cheerfully floating up to the ceiling with them while a bewildered tamarin looks on. Similar hilarious delights fill the entire book as the animals progress from setting up the party to a playful and joyous celebration complete with presents, games, and cake. But, don¿t forget to turn the over the last page or you¿ll miss a great surprise. Highly recommended for ages 2 to 6.

    What do children enjoy more than a birthday party? Young folks find a visit to the zoo exciting. The combination of the two in "Birthday Zoo" is bound to bring smiles of delight. Illustrated in engaging watercolors and presented in catchy rhyme, the story opens with a question, "`Hey, what's the big deal?'" noticed the seal." When it's discovered that the big deal is a birthday preparations begin. "`What do we do?' asked the emu. `Make everyone happy,' said the okapi." And that's precisely what this joyful narrative will do as balloons are blown up, party hats distributed, and refreshments served. At the last, imagine being wished happy birthday by a whole zoo!
