Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
Party invitations, themes, cakes and games are presented with clear directions and illustrations to create a special birthday party. Parents of young children will appreciate the common sense advice given on having a memorable party with quiet, team, and outdoor games. Older children will enjoy selecting among the food suggestions such as snake pizza and kid cocktails for their own parties. The Princess cake looks wonderful! This is great resource book for parents planning a child's party.

Gr 5 Up-A colorful, fun-filled guide to the planning and execution of inexpensive celebrations that promise to be long remembered. The book is full of photographs and ideas for venues, themes, invitations, games, food, and creative activities for toddlers to 10 year olds. Of special interest are the patterns for costumes for the theme parties, such as mermaids, pirates, and space creatures, and directions for such novelty cakes as castles and treasure chests. An organizational timeline, trouble-shooting questions and answers, first-aid tips, and an index are appended. Bastyra presents lots of surefire entertainment for busy party planners.-Pamela K.
