Reviews

"This upbeat rhyming story of a simple, no-frills party pairs well with the full-page cartoon illustrations of familiar scenes where a multiracial cast of guests partakes in the birthday traditions of games, opening gifts, blowing candles, and eating a cake that everyone can enjoy. . ." School Library Journal

"This bright and colorful picture book sheds light on certain childhood allergies. . .Teachers will find this book to be a great introduction to allergies, to embrace acceptance, and show respect."
