My daughter received a copy of this book for her first birthday. She loved it, and especially loved touching the sparkly foil designs under each of the flaps.

Because she liked it so much, I ordered a copy for my friend's child's birthday. When it came, the description on the back of the book had been changed, and no longer are any of the pictures made of sparkly foil. The description on Amazon is inaccurate. It's still cute, but definitely not as cute.

I bought this book for my son a few months prior to his first birthday to help him learn about the birthday celebration. I also didn't want him to be frightened at his first birthday party with everyone singing to him, which is a lot of stimuli for a baby, so this book helped prepare him. This book is very colorful, filled with sparkley foiled pages and lots of cute surprises. It quickly became one of his favorite stories to read and was a well loved book. I now buy it as a first birthday gift for all the babies in our life. Karen Katz has yet again created a delightful book filled with whimisical illustrations that capture a baby's attention. The "lift the flaps" concept is wonderful for babies and toddlers. This board book is sturdy, but not indestructible. The flaps are glued on, so they can be torn off, but they do repair reasonably well. A great addition to baby's library!

I worked with infants for 5 years and noticed that children love Karen Katz. I bought several of these to give as first birthday presents and so far every parent has come back saying it is their child's new favorite book.

I bought this for my granddaughters first birthday. She loved it and three months later is still trying to blow the candles out!
Beautifully illustrated I would recommend this book highly.

The copy of the book I received did not have any "sparkly foil" on any of the pages inside the book, cover only. I was disappointed. I think my 1 year old would have liked the book more if it had come as advertised.

I ordered this book for the daughter I gave up at birth. Her first birthday is comoing up and wanted something she could always remember me by and this book was perfect! There was cute little surprises behind every flap and the little girl in this book is as curious as my little girl is so it just seemed to fit. If you want a book that your little one will enjoy, I def suggest this book.

My 1 year old daughter loves to read so we have purchased numerous children's books recently. I have bought several of Karen Katz's books and have been completely happy with each one. She is a wonderful children's author, and her illustrations are great! The books are enjoyable to read to my daughter because they tell a simple story and get my daughter involved in the book by lifting the flaps. The flaps are pretty durable. I have had to repair a few pages so far, but that is to be expected with these types of books and one year old hands. We love Karent Katz and you will too!

Excellent lift-the-flap kids book. I gave lots of these books to my nephew's kids as gifts. My nephew's wife is VERY picky as to what she likes - I think she wasn't sure what she thought of these books at first, but her son chooses these books to be read time and time again. I think she likes the sturdiness of the board books. I loved lift-the-flap when I was a kid - I'm glad my grand(?)-nephew enjoys them too - they make reading books (and learning from them) fun!

The book itself is cute and holds my children's attention. It is colorful. I had to tape one lift flap after the one year old began to separate it from the page. I was disappointed that the colors and textures that we had in our copy of "Where is Baby's Pumpkin?" which we purchased several years ago were not repeated. This is still a good book, but I think the publisher is trying to save costs.

Love all of these books - however, for a person with an self-proclaimed "interest" in other cultures, why doesn't the author incorporate a little diversity into her characters? Every now and then throw in a non-white baby, please! I would buy them all if she at least tried to show a little bit of the diversity that exists in this country.
