We love reading, for me having that one on one time with Devon is very special. He wants it when he wants it and anytime we get a new book he’s more than ready to go. —Moose, Porcupine, and Rabbit are three best friends who love playing together. They enjoy the playground and woods but are excited to join together for Rabbit’s birthday party. First, the three jump on the trampoline and then take turns playing “Pin the Tail on the Chipmunk.” Observant readers will notice that Moose is very distracted during the games. Finally, it is time for cake. Unfortunately, Rabbit and Porcupine cannot find the cake or Moose. When they locate Moose, he is reclining in a chair with crumbs all over his sweater. Initially he denies his involvement with the missing cake, but his confession rushes out once his friends start crying. Ultimately, the friendship is saved when Moose redeems himself by making a new cake to share with his friends.
This book is great full of colorful characters, fun word bubbles, and vibrant illustrations. Making reading time for all fun. Not only will your kids love it you will too. This book shows kids feelings about a birthday party and how to make things right when you’ve hurt someone’s feelings.
