My Review

Very much in the vein of creating a perfect present, when I received this book in the mail to review, I was tickled at how the labeling on the packaging and the book all coordinated. This set the stage for me to open the book and read a sweet story about the first birthday candle. The text in the book is large and easy to read for those just starting to make out words. Colors splash across the page with the hand drawn illustrations. My children enjoyed the balloons and the party, especially the page where the Queen has an idea and all that is drawn on the page are big, purple eyes. This book would make a delightful birthday gift for a young child.
