Grade 2-4?Simply laid out in double-page spreads, this text explores how birthdays are observed around the globe. Each entry includes an appropriate greeting in the country's official language, a world map highlighting the area under discussion, a short description of typical birthday customs, and a simple activity. Readers can make Australian fairy bread; crackers in the Canadian custom; or learn to play Ampe, a popular party game in Ghana. The "Happy Birthday" song is featured in nine languages that include English, Korean, Hebrew, and Spanish. Colorful illustrations add to the festive mood. No source notes appear, but there is a bibliography. Pair this offering with Gail Gibbons's Happy Birthday! (Holiday, 1987) for a joyful look at birthday history, customs, and celebrations. This book is a good source for party ideas as well. A solid addition to any collection on a subject that never goes out of fashion.?Jane Claes, T. J. Lee Elementary School, Irving, TX
