Highly recommended for knitters and the children who love them. --Knitcircus

The beautiful illustrations give the story a timeless quality. --Knitty


Children will delight in Phoebe's adventures; needleworkers who complete the projects will become instant heroes! --Piecework

This is a sweet and tender family story about a major accomplishment in Phoebe's young life; achieved on her birthday, no less. Richly illustrated in the tradition of well-told children's tales, the beautiful artwork allows readers - young or old - to relate to their own special times in life. Astonishingly, the author also includes the knitting and quilting patterns of her creative designs so readers can make enduring reminders of Phoebe's special Birthday for their own loved ones.

What I love about this book is that it is suited to a range of ages. In my family, we have an infant girl, a 6-year old girl, and 9-year old girl. The setting of the beach is special to our family, and never grows old (even for a pre-teen) and there is a pattern in the back of the book perfect for each of my girls. The colorful, fanciful beach and mermaid illustrations really feel inviting to the imagination and the story celebrates a milestone birthday in such a wonderful way.

I love this whole series. My favorite picture is the one of the yarn store, but the whole book is delightful.

Having reviewed the first of the books by the talented husband and wife team of Joanna and Eric Johnson, I add these observations of their latest book. Seldom are the joint themes of love and trust so simply taught as in PHOEBE'S BIRTHDAY. How often do children, or we adults for that matter, keep "one toe planted" in life until trusting someone we love to help us to "really swim" by ourselves. Another of life's lessons gently and respectfully written and illustrated by the Johnsons. Hats off for the courage to include the boom box, cigerette smoking character on page 11. Another 'teachable moment' to help a child learn to respect their own body and also to respect other people's ears. Well done you two!!
