Happy Birthday, Davy! by Brigitte Weninger- ADVISABLE

Weninger, Brigitte. Happy Birthday, Davy!, PICTURE BOOK. NorthSouth Books, Inc., 2015. $15.95. Content: G. Davy is so excited for his birthday, but it feels very far away. During his wait, he listens to his father tell a story about a rabbit who is granted three wishes. Davy thinks about the things he would wish for if he had three wishes and decides that he’d like someone who always had time to tell him stories, someone that would teach him more games, and for someone who had lots of time to spend with him. For his biggest birthday gift, he's given his grandparents who can grant all of his wishes. This was a very sweet book. I liked the focus on family and on gifts that consist of spending time together rather than on physical objects. The presence of others is often all that you need. EL (K-3)- ADVISABLE.
