Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Rhyming couplets take an unnamed birthday bunny from the start of her day until bedtime. Each couplet begins with a question that is answered in the second line. "What are these/and what are those?/Fancy shoes and party clothes!" "Why does every one say cheese?/Because we want to take your picture, please!" Graegin's pencil and watercolor pictures depict a sweet and cozy world filled with fun, love, guests, and presents. The art and text work beautifully together. When Scanlon writes "Make a wish…/get set…/and blow!," Graegin shows the birthday cake and wish in a thought balloon. When Scanlon writes "You're growing up/ before our eyes," Graegin shows a succession of pictures of the birthday bunny from infant to toddler. The pictures have lots of excellent detail, such as Mother and Nana both wearing dresses with carrot patterns-one subtle and one less so. Perfect for storytime or individual sharing.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

I bought this book for my son's first birthday. This is by far his favorite book. The illustrations are so cute and the story is very sweet.
