Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Twenty-four birthday poems are included in this collection, part of Livingston's series of books of poetry for holidays . The selections cover a variety of aspects of birthdays, including age, party planning and set-up, party activities, and greediness about presents. While the party activities reflect the lives of middle-class children, with beach and museum trips, camp-outs, and entertainments, a number of poems could be used with children who are less fortunate. In addition, Tomes has provided integration through her art work, using children of various races and dressed in clothing of various time periods to broaden the meanings of the poems. Libraries that do not own the Brewtons' more comprehensive Birthday Candles Burning Bright (Macmillan, 1960; o.p.) or who do lots of birthday programming will find this collection useful. --Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
