One by one a host of animals offer ingredients when a child decides to bake a birthday cake. PW called the story "perfectly paced" and said that the "understated" watercolors "shine with the quiet resplendence of happy family life." Ages 2-up.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-K-Wanting to make a birthday cake, a youngster asks various animals to provide the ingredients, and they do. A chicken supplies the eggs; a bear, the flour; a cat, the butter and milk; a pig, the salt; a dog, the sugar; and a monkey, cherries for the top. The creatures then help the child make the cake, and help eat it, too. This is a wonderfully simple story. The soft watercolor illustrations are warm and gently humorous, particularly the depictions of the endearing animals, who stand on two legs and are just as childlike as their human friend. The preschooler's gender is nonspecific, which gives all children the opportunity to identify with the main character. A charming addition to preschool story times.
