I bought this book for my K/1 classroom. Wonderful! I love the idea of the book and the illustrations. I recreated the craft associated with this book on the author's website as a bulletin board with all of the children's birthdays.
I have enjoyed the tradition of purchasing Debra Frasier's ON THE DAY YOU WERE BORN for the newborn babies among my family and friends. This book, BIRTHDAY CAKE IS NO ORDINARY CAKE, is a perfect birthday marker as the child grows.
