Happy Birthday to Me

Happy Birthday to Me

How does it feel to turn a year older? A child runs through a spectrum of emotions on the best day of the year, their birthday!

A child runs through a spectrum of emotions on the best day of the year―their birthday! Early-morning excitement gives way to shyness at the arrival of guests, hunger for cake, a craze for arts and crafts, and some real piñata problems. So how can a kid possibly answer that age old question: “How does it feel to be a year older?” 

From bestselling picture-book creator Thao Lam comes this irrepressible celebration of emotions, captured in a rainbow of cut-paper collage. Happy Birthday to Me makes for the perfect birthday present or anytime-guide to naming our feelings.
