Birthday Rules


Birthday Rules written by Laurie Friedman and illustrated by Teresa Murfin (2015)

The birthday boy (whose initials spell PIG, even though this doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the story) rhymes 10 rules to having an awesome birthday. Everything from taking a bath and wearing a smile to having your cake and eating it too. Enjoy this book with a fun-filled frolicking beat!


Birthdays are so much fun, one day a year that’s all about you! Take some tips from Percy Isaac Gifford and have a bang-up celebration.

      They’re not really ‘mine’… public domain on Pinterest. But I’m glad you liked the review and the activities to go with your book. (And, yes, thank you notes must follow every gift a person receives!) 🙂
