How to Have a Birthday

We rated this book:


It’s a special day that only comes once a year; it’s your birthday, the day that marks when you came into this bright world. It holds wonder and mystery from the time you wake up until you lay your head down at night. Some may give you a gift to express how much you matter, to show you that you’re cherished. Sometimes, just knowing the whole day is yours to use as you wish is the best present of all. Pictures capture the memories of this celebratory occasion, and traditions mark it with meaning. Both help you capture the day’s significance and the place you hold in this giant universe.

This is a touching tribute to birthdays and the value they hold for each and every person. While it’s designed for children ages four to eight, it’s appropriate for any age. The text is relatively brief, making it ideal for a quick pick-me-up, a delightful bedtime story, or simply a heartwarming reading experience.

The beautiful message and gorgeous illustrations that are woven through the pages of this thoughtful book make it a perfect coffee table pick. There’s a sweetness about it that’ll pull readers in, captivating them. There’s clearly a universal appeal to it as well.
