I Love Birthdays - Anna Walker




Released December 2010

Anna Walker
Simon & Schuster

Reviewed by Bob Walch


Who doesn’t love a birthday?  Perhaps no one, though, loves a birthday party more than Ollie, the cloth zebra featured in this “I Love” series of picture books for children two years of age and older.

You’ll follow the progress of Ollie’s birthday party as his friends help him celebrate. There are a cake with pink frosting, balloons, gaily wrapped presents from his friends, and a treasure hunt.

Yummy treats, party hats and games are also part of the afternoon. But best of all, there is singing. If you have read some of the other books featuring Ollie, you know he just loves to sing. And, when everyone has gone home, Ollie and his dog Fred snuggle down in bed, read a book and look at the green balloon floating overhead.

The simple illustrations and easy text make this a picture book that you can enjoy reading aloud to your child, but it also can be useful for practicing “do it yourself” reading .
