***Birthdays Around the World

by Mary D. Lankford

Illustrated by Karen Dugan

Reviewed 03/03/03.
HarperCollins Publishers, New York, 2002.  32 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (J 394.2 LAN)

This simple book tells us how people celebrate birthdays in seven different countries of the world: Finland, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, The Philippines, and Sweden.  With each country, we are told at least one popular game that children might play, so it also gives good ideas for party games.

A fun book that kids will find interesting.
