This sweet-filled bilingual picture book celebrating a birthday is just as sweet to read. The child telling the story is happy to celebrate their sister every step of the way. The illustrations are colorful and cheerful, although one illustration has six candles when the text calls for seven. Erika Said's rhyming text in Spanish is cheerful and flows naturally, the English translation is well done.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
