On the day of a birthday, everything is backwards. In the morning the sun goes down, and everyone says goodbye. Then the wacky party starts from the end and is all mixed up. The ice cream was hot, and the donkey pinned the tail on everyone else. As everything goes on, the words even get mixed up! The illustrations are soft and sweet. There are tons of different animals, that will be fun for the kids to name. They will get a kick out of everything going out of order, and you may even be able to make an activity out of putting the events in the right order. Plus we all know that kids love to tell adults they are wrong! This is totally a win win read aloud book!
