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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book I enjoy reading these to my son, and now that he is older, he still goes back to these books to read them on his own, wonderful books all around

Rated 2 out of 5 by from How Do Dinosaurs Say Happy Birthday?(How Do Dinosaurs...?) I hadn't found one of these dinosaurs books that I didn't like - until now. And it's not even that I don't like it, it's just not as good as the others. I can't quite put my finger on it, if it's the rhymes or what. My two year old loves this series and I usually have to read the book four or five times in a row. Even she just got up and walked away after one reading.
