An adorable and heartwarming story about a 7-year-old’s magical birthday celebrations in space. Loved the illustrations–they transported me back to my childhood. My 4-year-old enjoyed the story and asked so many questions about the pictures, especially the cotton candy pink cloud. He also learned about some space objects like comets and planets.
Of course, the book is meant for older children who can read it themselves. Since the text usually has a dedicated page, perhaps the font could have been larger to make it easier to read.
The language is simple with age-appropriate vocabulary and the storytelling is engrossing. Thumbs up from me!
