Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Birthday ~Disclaimer~ I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is such a cute story of a mother telling her child how he came to be and has grown. I absolutely loved the soft and delicate illustrations. The words were simple enough to be read to a small child. This is the perfect book to be read to your child on their birthday. 5/5 ⭐

Editorial Reviews

"Spare text, translated from Japanese, is loving and celebratory, while soft illustrations with minimal backgrounds provide an ideal aesthetic match." —Kirkus Reviews
