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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
