Every child has a birthday, but not every birthday is celebrated in quite the same way. In the U.S., children blow out candles on a cake. In Scotland, one lucky guest may find a surprise baked into the birthday cake. In China, children eat long noodles to celebrate the long life of their grandparents. Brightly colored art by children around the world combines with the simple, rhyming text to create a global birthday party young readers will return to year after year. Full color.
