This is a cute little book for very young children. The "Happy Birthday" song is well-known and kids sing is a lot at each other's birthday parties. This book provides the happy activity of remembering all the fun of a birthday party. It could spark conversations about happy times. The book could also be used to help children look forward to participating in friends' parties. Children can be taught how to be the guest at the party and make the day special for someone else, rather than only thinking about the joy of one's own birthday bash. (Be sure that parents check and completely secure the battery compartment once the batteries have been changed.)

What a perfect gift for that special birthday child, whether boy or girl, this sturdy book is sure to hit the spot, and you will not be able to wait to give this delightful gift. I can picture the little ones face as the bright colors draw their attention, and while grasping the thick cardboard book, just right for their hands, the book sings Happy Birthday to them. There is even a place in the back for you to place a picture of your favorite star of the day. I can see this becoming the favorite gift of the day, it is so personal and loving, and other elements for making a special day perfect for them. I received this book through Worthy Kids/Ideals and was not required to give a positive review.

"Happy Birthday to You" is a delightful book and the perfect birthday gift for the little ones in your life. Several things are, to me, especially impressive. First, author Michelle Medlock Adams provides text that is upbeat and cheerful, and the rhyme scheme is carried throughout the book in a way that creates a very smooth flow and that keeps the listener's attention. I especially loved the final page, in which the focus shifts from the party with guests, cake, and all the normal trimmings to the mention of a "prayer of thanks" for the birthday boy/girl and the line "I'm so proud of who you are". What a great closing! The artwork is also outstanding. Bright, cheerful colors abound, and they are used in a way that (like the text) creates a smooth flow from page to page. The human characters and animals are adorable, and the facial expressions are well done. Each scene is interesting and complex enough to keep a child's attention time after time; at the same time, the scenes are not so complex as to be too "busy". Very nicely done by Sandra Rodriguez! However, because "the proof is in the pudding", I read this book to 5 toddlers (one at a time). Each one asked me to read it again . . . and again . . . and again. Each smiled, giggled, and laughed as I read, and each one pointed at various things on the page as I turned them. They also loved pressing the button -- 2 laughed at the song; the other 3 smiled and sang along (as best they could :)). I also asked the mom of each of the 5 to loan me a photo of their toddler, and I inserted that in the sleeve on the last page. When I turned to the last page, each child was so surprised to see their own picture right there in the book, and they were obviously delighted to be a part of the book. Then I handed the book to each child. It was a good fit for their small hands, and the pages are thick enough that they were able to turn them without difficulty. It is interesting to note that none of the 5 children I shared "Happy Birthday to You!" was actually celebrating a birthday. That didn't make a bit of difference to them, so I'm sure any child that receives this book will enjoy it far after their birthday is past. I will definitely be ordering multiple copies of this book -- one for each of my 5 reviewer-helpers and several more to have on hand for gifts! (I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, which I have provided above)

Bright, colorful and sturdy book for chubby toddler hands! My grandchildren loved having this book read to them, they were taken in by the rhyming words, the birthday tune and the photo pocket to hold a special photo of the birthday boy/girl! Since receiving this book they have asked to hear the "birthday book" multiple times. I see this staying a favorite for them. I highly recommend it for any young birthday boy or girl!!

My son LOVED the book! He liked putting his picture in the book. We kept singing happy birthday all day. So much fun!!

When I read this book, I smiled from cover to cover! It is very whimsically written and illustrated. It is sure to be loved by children of all ages. The musical button allows the readers to sing their own version of the happy birthday song. The durable design of the book makes it appropriate for even the youngest readers. The ability to insert a photo as well as write the names of the recipient and the giver adds a special, personal touch that will make each book unique.

This is a delightful book! I loved it! I purchased one for each of my 3 grandsons. It has everything necessary to make a great gift or could be used as a card for ANY age! Precious wording--great lines--a bit of Dr. Seuss type rhyming--so well done! The illustrations are charming, bright and colorful. The sound and the picture personalize the book in such a unique way! A sturdy cover & pages make this especially good for the wee ones, but after receiving my copies--I decided to order several more. It will be perfect for the teenage girl next door and a few of my "adult friends". I think they will enjoy it every bit as much as the younger crowd--a "special" gift for a "special" person!!!
