Dr. Seuss Birthday Books: Happy Birthday to You! by Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You! (Mini Pops) and Happy Birthday, Baby by Dr. Seuss. Random House Books for Young Readers publishes the Dr. Seuss birthday titles.

Plot/Summary The Birthday Bird(BB) of Katroo visits and awakens the birthday person. After a special handshake, BB whisks the lucky one to Katroo. It is that personís special day. Why? Because he is he and she is she. Is it not grand?! Celebrations start early in the morning and lasts late into the night. The people of Katroo serve hot dogs, grant wishes and entertain wonderfully. There are visits to the Birthday Flower Jungle, Birthday Palace, wherever the birthday personís heart wants. Eat whatever they want. It is a special day because she is she and born this day.

Happy Birthday to You! by Dr. Seuss, a picture book, has 52 pages. Its intended reading group is kids between four and eight-years-old. However, older children and adults enjoy the picture book and receive Happy Birthday to You! as birthday gifts. Dr. Seuss writes and illustrates the book. It contains his original text as published in 1959. This classic Dr. Seuss picture book is a keeper to pass through the generations.

Happy Birthday, Baby by Dr. Seuss. a board book, has 10 pages. Its intended reading group is infants/toddlers between one and three-years-old. A note of warning to those wanting Dr. Seuss rhymes and illustrations in a board book format. Dr. Seuss did not write the actual text. The rhymes are based on the earlier work. Jan Gerardi illustrates the childrenís book. The colors are brighter due to todayís technology.

Dr. Seussís board book, Happy Birthday, Baby, is an interactive book. Babies move, smell and touch the pages as the story progresses. As always, supervise children with interactive books with movable parts. Happy Birthday to You! (Mini Pops) is an interactive story book, too. It contains 12 pages. Imagine six delightful pop-ups bringing Katroo three dimensional! Again, the rhymes and illustrations are not by Dr. Seuss. However, whimsical characters grace the pages and the rhymes flow nicely. The board and pop-up books are small to fit toddlers and the youngerís hands.

Children need a regular routine. A set bedtime and place to sleep are part of the daily routine. Read a bedtime story as part of the nightly ritual. Read quiet, soothing books to children in their warm, comfortable bed. This allows a child to associate reading with comfort and security. The association will continue a lifetime.
