Okay, today we are talking about picture books and Virtual Birthday Party Picture Books for kids.
Virtual Birthday Party Picture Books
For many households, giving picture books as a birthday present is a time-honoured tradition. And with good reason: Books encourage reading and storytelling – and they are lots of fun! A great picture book is a gift they may very well remember forever.
I know I feel that way about I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sellew.
We’ll be sharing more picture books in the future but today we are going to look at 5 Picture Books about Birthdays that we love.
Happy Birthday to You!
The Great Birthday Bird will never be remembered in the same breadth as The Grinch or The Cat in the Hat but this book is still packed with Dr. Seuss goodness. That means lots of wacky words and rhyme schemes. This book is flat-out fun!
Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party
Scaredy Squirrel’s birthday checklist includes: “Confirm date of birth; pick a safe location; choose party colours; get tuxedo dry-cleaned; prepare cake recipe; practice breathing (to blow up balloons/blow out candles); mail party invitation to myself.”
Yup, there’s only one guest at his party – and that’s Scaredy Squirrel. Fortunately things don’t go according to plans.
Ten Rules of the Birthday Wish
A charmer. ‘Rule no. 1: It must be your birthday. Or close to your birthday. Sometime in the last or next week, your age should have increased by one. Unless you are a beetle, bug, or insect…’
A warm, funny and absolutely delightful set of birthday rules.
when’s my birthday?
This book perfectly captures the anticipation leading up to the big day. The prose is marvellous and the illustrations are wonderful.
I Got You A Present!
Surprise! We’re plugging our book! We think it’s a great birthday book but if you don’t believe us, check out the rave reviews for it.
One Last Thing!
There are so many great birthday books that capture a kid’s attention and imagination. During your virtual birthday party, you can read a hard copy, or share your kindle, or if you’re feeling ambitious, you can scan the book’s pages, put it into PowerPoint and share your screen for an even more visually sumptuous experience. We’ve found that kids really respond well to that.
