What could be better than sharing a birthday cake with the friends who helped to bake it?

It’s one lucky toddler’s birthday, and of course there must be a cake. So the child asks some animal friends to gather ingredients, one by one: the chicken an egg, the bear some flour, the cat the butter and milk, the pig a pinch of salt, the dog some sugar, and the monkey a bunch of cherries for the top. After they all share the fun of making the cake, it’s even more fun to eat it! Helen Oxenbury’s winsome illustrations and simple, repetitive text make this an ideal gift for the youngest of children.

Praise For…

Wanting to make a birthday cake, a youngster asks various animals to provide the ingredients, and they do . . . The soft watercolor illustrations are warm and gently humorous . . . A charming addition to preschool story times.
