A Gluten-free Birthday for Me!


This upbeat rhyming story of a simple, no-frills party pairs well with the full-page cartoon illustrations of familiar scenes where a multiracial cast of guests partakes in the birthday traditions of games, opening gifts, blowing candles, and eating a cake that everyone can enjoy. . ." —School Library Journal

Have to celebrate special occasions and birthdays with food intolerances? No problem. Gluten-free birthday cake is the answer to this dilemma! The girl in this story solved the problem by baking a cake with her mother. Piñatas, relay races, painted faces, removable tattoos, and even cake that gluten-free folks can eat. Sounds like a fabulous kids' birthday party to me! No one has to feel left out. Presents, party favors, and everyone goes home. Adults, kids, the baby, and the dog have a wonderful time. —New York Public Library
