Sweet and charming, this little picture book perfectly captures the preoccupation young children have with their birthdays. Fogliano's rhythmic pose is meant to be read aloud, while Robinson's art lends color and texture to the words. A pleasant read, even for a grown up!

This book is a delightful look at birthdays. The pace of the language and the simple illustrations contribute to the birthday joy.

This book is so lovely, but I really hate the page size. This is entirely based on how awkward it would be to hold for storytime.

Immensely clever! Robinson's gorgeous, stylized illustrations & Fogliano's buoyant prose invite readers to anticipate, as much as celebrate, BIRTHDAYS. One of the best books of 2017.

An award-winning author and illustrator have teamed up to create a book that perfectly captures the exciting agony of anticipation and the total joy a child experiences when it is finally their birthday! Might make the wait easier to handle...
