Happy to You!

Front Cover
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2001 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
Wrappings ripping, blocks thump-bumping, a pink cake twinkle-twinkling-it's a birthday party! Daniel is there to join in the fun, and when it's time to sing “Happy Birthday!" he sings “Happy to you!" Now Daniel has a way to celebrate all day long! At home he says “Happy to you!" to his favorite things, including his brown cow named Moo, and then he heads outside to greet his big green yard. When Mom finally tucks him in for his nap, this tired toddler is happy to sleep.
With words and pictures as buoyant as bright balloons, Caron Lee Cohen and Rosanne Litzinger present a delightful story about one little boy's special day.
