School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 3Full-page, full-color art done by children between the ages of 9 and 13 is the basis of this book that shows birthday celebrations around the world. The child's name, age, and country appear below each picture. The text consists of two rhyming lines per double-page spread. This colorful title is suitable for story times, general reading, and for use in the classroom. End notes provide additional information about the celebrations in the various countries included. A welcome addition and a good discussion starter.Denise Furgione, Atlantic County Library, Mays Landing, NJ
