Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The moody narrator of Alicia Has a Bad Day has a much better day in this greeting-card-size birthday announcement. Delighted by presents, party guests and a "yummy" cake with five candles, the girl dances and leads her friends in a parade. "I sing. Tra-la-la-la! Happy, happy, happy birthday to . . . ME!" she exclaims. Alicia's name is not mentioned, but readers of the previous book will recognize her blonde bob and round glasses, choppily sketched in crayony black outlines and frosting-thick paint; smeary brushstrokes suggest antic movement. Chances are that this picture book will see double duty as a birthday card and as reading material. Its five-inch-square trim makes it just the right size for the child graduating from board books (or for the older birthday celebrant who has everything). All ages. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What's so special about this day? Why, it's my birthday. This book celebrates the big day with a delightful little girl. Her exuberance and joy are delightfully depicted in this card-size book. Sure to be a hit with girls of all ages.
School Library Journal
PreS-KA little girl romps about, celebrating her birthday by wearing her crown, dancing her happy dance, receiving presents, and, of course, by blowing out the candles on her cake. The short text is simple and to the point, leaving nothing for readers to guess. One picture shows the birthday girl grinning a huge grin while holding a gift, exclaiming, "I like presents." While the cartoonlike illustrations are cheerful and colorful, the book's tiny size makes it difficult to use in story- time settings.Lisa Marie Gangemi, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Jahn-Clough (Alicia Has a Bad Day, 1994, not reviewed) introduces a heroine who vibrates off the page with glee. She wears a crown, toots her own horn, leads the parade, and welcomes all presents. And why not? It's her birthday, the day when even the shyest child throws off the shackles of civilization and sings me, me, ME! Childlike drawings bounce along with their heroine in colorful, energetic celebration. Small in scale, perfectly sized for a pocket, this book offers a festive start to any young child's birthday observances.
