For kids of ALL ages,
This review is from: Happy Birthday to You! (Hardcover)
This book isn't just for children. Its for anyone who wants to feel like a child. For my mother's 50th birthday, I got her a fairy princess crown and a fairy princess wand, then read this book aloud to all the guests as she sat holding her wand and wearing her crown. It was a lot of fun. Then I passed the book around for everyone to sign.
You don't have to be a kid to enjoy Dr. Seuss.

Thanks for the comments about the Dr. Suess Happy Birthday to You book. I've been looking for a special gift for my friend who is turning 50. Most of what I've found is "over the hill" gag stuff, but when I saw this book I loved it. My only hesitation was that I wasn't giving it to a child and wondered if it would be appropriate. So when I saw your review I was thrilled to hear that you gave it as a 50th birthday gift. It solves my gift dilemma. Thanks!

I find it absolutely mind-blowing that a review I wrote nearly 11 1/2 years ago helped someone pick a birthday gift. Wow. Thanks for the comment.

That's a wonderful review! I'm buying 2 copies of this book - one for my daughter who is turning 1, and another for my mother who'll be visiting then, and has her birthday a week later. This way, they'll have a matching book! Thanks!

Your comment is the first to come up under the 5 star rating. And I just read it, and got all misty eyed. What a fantastic idea.

What a great idea for anyone with a big birthday. My daughter
turns 36 in April.
I will definitely keep in mind a crown, wand, and this book. Her children will love it.

Wow, that's cool that your review has been here for that long. I didn't even know of Amazon back then. I don't think I did.
