It'd be just plain sad, that's what.
We don't want people sad on birthday week, so we deliver!! Jumbo sized list of birthday-ish books at your service. (You should have seen how excited Cuteness was that we were checking out birthday books and her birthday was coming. Adorable!)
It's no secret that around my (Whit's) house Birdie's Big-Girl Dress by Sunjean Rim is a big hit! I've probably talked about it on the blog like 5 times…so lets make it 6! We love Birdie and her search for a new dress to wear to her birthday party!
For Snail's Birthday Wish (by Fiona Rempt) he wants to be fast like his friends so he doesn't miss out on all the fun. Luckily, his friends have a great idea on how to help him out.
My (Robyn's) Go-To birthday book is Birthday Zoo by Deborah Lee Rose. I just can't resist the rhymes paired with the zoo animals. The twist at the end is the cherry on top. Delightful!
A Birthday for Cow! is written by Jan Thomas. If you've read any of her other books, then you know silly fun is something you can count on in this book! Oh, and turnips, those are in here too!
Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau by Andrea Beatty. The hats! The rhymes! The illustrations! (click here for the full review)
I Am Invited to a Party! by Mo Willems isn't totally a birthday book per say BUT its totally party and totally hilarious! We love it around here!!
We have a real love for pigs in this house. If You Give a Pig a Party by Laura Numeroff is the perfect book for my little pig lover. Cause you know all kinds of crazy stuff happens if you give a pig a party…
And, if you love the characters from the "if you give a…" books then you might want to check them out as they help mouse celebrate his birthday in the board book Happy Birthday, Mouse!
Do you love cake? Whopper Cake by Karma Wilson is the book for you! The illustrations in the book are such fun! And the process behind making the cake? You don't want to miss it.
For the most part birthdays and parties in general are great! Right? Well, in Henry's Happy Birthday (by Holly Keller) things don't go just the way Henry had hoped. He gets feeling kinda grumpy amidst all of his birthday celebrations. (Who hasn't felt that way now and then?) Find yourself a copy to find out what happens.
Mouse's Birthday by Jane Yolen is pretty darn cute!! It's sort of like The Mitten, but instead of hiding from the cold everyone is crowding in to help mouse celebrate his birthday!!
