This innovative series grew out of a desire to provide all children with the opportunity to see themselves within the books they are reading and to identify with the children and families they see. The diversity of today’s families is clearly captured. The simple text and engaging photographs explore the relationship between very young children and their environment.
Happy Birthday explores a young child’s world using photographs of a variety of children celebrating their special day.
