Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Learning how to prepare for and present a good party is put well within the reach of young novices. Responsible hosting and the importance of working with your "party approver" are emphasized, as are good manners and sensitivity toward others. The straightforward text takes readers from the decision to have a gathering through drawing up a guest list, creating and sending invitations, making decorations, and preparing games and food, all with minimal adult help. The themes are adaptable to both inside and outside venues and include a polar expedition, a safari, a high-seas adventure, a space voyage, and a westward trek. Patterns and suggestions for invitations and activities are provided, as are recipes for fun treats such as "Apple Igloos," a "Crocodile Hoagie," and "Limey-Aid." Heavy, glossy pages add to the durability of this attractive book, which is illustrated with linocuts and colorful washes. This title is less cluttered and more accessible to youngsters than Kathy Ross's The Best Birthday Parties Ever!

    An Absolute Party Sucsess!

    A normal party, the mom does it. But this year I did it! I was the Birthday girl and the Party girl! Thanks to Lori Bonner's great book I was able to have a great party and best of all I was easily able to get my P.A. to say yes without to much begging! Lori's book is so helpful to kids and adults, there are many good tips and funny jokes too! Best of all I felt great {after cleaning up of course} to have planned and done a great party!
