Birthday Fun! Mar 12, 2003
We use this book in the classroom to celebrate our kids' birthdays. The illustrations are fun, and it's nice to have a book with a cultural twist, alot of my students relate to it, and the others get to ask questions about the others cultures and the words they used. A lot of FUN!
