Everyone has a birthday, and from riotous birthday parties to the excitement of being one year older, having a birthday is the highlight of a young child's year.
All little dinosaurs love to get presents, and this new board book will be an immediate favorite. From birthday hats to Ceratosaurus-sized cakes, America's young readers will laugh out loud as the celebration moves from "bad" birthday behavior to just the right amount of silliness and sharing. Bestselling duo Jane Yolen and Mark Teague have created the perfect introduction to birthday parties, with the same beloved humor and warmth of all their previous bestselling "How Do Dinosaurs" books.
Here's a wonderful way to say "Happy Birthday " to any dinosaur...young or old

As in their previous books, Yolen and Teague delicately nudge readers toward appropriate behavior using rhetorical questions and loveably indecorous dinosaurs. At a birthday party, does a dinosaur child "finger the frosting,/ lick all the ice cream?" or "grab all the presents?/ Snatch up every card?" A yellow and red Kentrosaurus "greets every guest—then tells them/ their presents are simply the best." As ever, the joy is in the dinos' impish behavior, as Yolen and Teague prove there's no social situation that can't be made more fun with dinosaurs. Ages 3–5. (Sept.)
