This is such a great birthday book! Fiona is celebrating her birthday and realized that she missed her friends. They have a fun animal party.
This is a great story about sharing and spending time with others. I read this with my daughter on her birthday and it was the perfect book because she loves animals.
The illustrations in this book are cute and it is the perfect book for celebrating a young child's birthday. We read this multiple times through. My daughter now wants to visit the real Fiona!
Thank you to the Publisher and Netgalley for providing me a digital ARC in exchange for an honest review.
A delightful read for all ages. Who doesn't love a cute hippo. And a cute hippo with a birthday. Fiona is celebrating being a year older but she forgets something very important about celebrating. It is easy to get wrapped into ourselves and forget what the blessing of others. We need our zoo animal friends to learn the value of friendship and what they bring.
A special thank you to Zonderkidz and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
Happy Birthday, Fiona by Zondervan is a happy story about everyone giving presents to Fiona. Fiona was so happy and posed for photos that she forget to remember all her friends at the zoo. I loved the ending where she gives all her friends gifts. Children will love the colorful illustrations.
Who could not love a cute little book about Fiona! Especially one with such a sweet message. Little Fiona is celebrating her big day. She has been showered with gifts, and media. Meanwhile her friends at the zoo want to celebrate with Fiona too. But with Fiona so wrapped up in her own celebration will she remember that sometimes the best gift is that of friendship? I think this book would be the perfect story time book!
Thank you so much Zonderkidz and Netgalley for allowing me to read an advance copy.
