Reviews

Gentle and full of charm, this is a nice selection for toddlers and very young readers, who will appreciate the clear story, repetition and obvious affection shared among the lovable characters. ... Preschoolers will enjoy this very festive celebration.
--Kirkus Reviews

The text is light and fun with an easy-to-read rhythm and rhyme. ... The illustrations, done in acrylic, are soft and fuzzy. This story a good choice for birthday collections, but the bears are endearing enough to be enjoyed any day of the year.
--School Library Journal

The rhyming text is simple and flows well.... This is a sweet story of friendship and birthdays, which would be a good pick for storytime or sharing one-on-one.
