PreS - Grade 1-- Three separate vignettes about birthdays starring six-year-old Benny ; his dog , Charlie ; and sister , Marla , on her fifth birthday. When Benny gets an umbrella for his birthday, he can hardly wait for it to rain. In the meantime, he finds creative uses for his new present--keeping the sun off his ice-cream cone and giving his toy lion a ride. In "The Birthday Bone," Charlie plays with his new bone until he outgrows it. Marla loves stars in the third sequence--stars made out of paper, cookie stars, stars in the sky. Her birthday brings her a star cake and star-shaped pin from brother Benny. Caseley has once again created a cozy family environment with these anecdotal stories for beginning readers as well as for the picture book crowd. Her childlike watercolor and colored pencil illustrations suggest each scene in small snatches rather than fill the whole page. Short sentences and perky drawings make this a welcome addition to sections of birthdays stories and easy-to-read books. --Megan McDonald, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
