BECKY'S BIRTHDAY

KIRKUS REVIEW

A story of nostalgic enchantment is this account of ten-year-old Becky and her birthday. In a period where children are glutted by material reassurances of parental affection, the story of a country birthday made memorable by gifts of flowers, a hay ride, and homemade ice cream is not only romantic, it is refreshing. Tasha Tudor's illustrations are soft and evocative of a less harsh time in which experience was less mechanized and more in harmony with the rhythm of nature. A poetic recapitulation of what is one of the most significant anniversaries in a person's life, the celebration of having lived one decade.
