Overview

Wrappings ripping, blocks thump-bumping, a pink cake twinkle-twinkling—it’s a birthday party! Daniel is there to join in the fun, and when it’s time to sing “Happy Birthday!” he sings “Happy to you!” Now Daniel has a way to celebrate all day long! At home he says “Happy to you!” to his favorite things, including his brown cow named Moo, and then he heads outside to greet his big green yard. When Mom finally tucks him in for his nap, this tired toddler is happy to sleep.
With words and pictures as buoyant as bright balloons, Caron Lee Cohen and Rosanne Litzinger present a delightful story about one little boy’s special day.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"a pinch of silliness and a dash of nonsense words add to toddler appeal...Like an unexpected gift, Cohen's bubbly tale will brighten reader's days." Kirkus Reviews

For the toddler crowd in this picture book there's joy in the sounds of words, their repetition and rhythm, and there's excitement in what the words name—colors, movements, feelings, objects. . . . The watercolor pictures are bright and clear, as lively as the words, with lots for the lap-sit crowd to point at on the page and name in the happy world around them.
