KIRKUS REVIEW

Newly liberated from copyright protection, the birthday song gets a board book.

Everybody knows “Happy Birthday to You,” and little readers can sing along as they manipulate the sliding mechanisms found within this chunky board book. A little bunny wakes up to be greeted by smiling parents with breakfast in bed—clearly a birthday treat. The bunny opens presents, greets friends, and enjoys birthday cake. The sliding components are quite sturdy, but eager readers may still rip out some of the panels. Before they do, they can slide the parent bunnies into the doorway, “open” the big package that contains a brand-new tricycle, pop some friends up over the hedge, and cause those friends to sway in time to the song. The festive illustrations colored with yellows, purples, and blues will certainly draw little ones in. The similarly crafted and simultaneously publishing Hey Diddle Diddle renders the popular Mother Goose nursery rhyme, allowing readers to jump the cow over the moon on the cover. A QR code is included with each board book, enabling tech-savvy adults to download the songs.

A fine birthday present for early readers. (Board book. 1-3)
