PreSchool-Grade 2 In this joyous celebration of family love, a little girl is told about each of her birthdays from the moment of her birth until she is six. Stevenson's illustrations begin with an uncluttered view of mother, father, and newborn baby. From then on, Rylant's understated text and Stevenson's double-page spreads show the three engaging in birthday activities. Both text and illustrations vividly capture the tears, trials, joys, and jubilations of childhoodstar cakes, clown cakes, and robot cakes; flu, stomachaches, and frustrations. Stevenson's vibrant illustrations depict a loving home filled with the clutter of an active child. Many of the illustrations are framed like snapshots in a family album, and the candid shots perfectly capture the expressions of children at parties who don't want to share, faces smeared with chocolate, and tantrums. Family history and memories combine in this book that's a work of love, a true presentand one that should cause children to clammer for stories of their past birthdays.
