How Oliver Celebrates his July 4 Birthday



In the early reader chapter book Oliver's Birthday and the Robin's Nest, Oliver is not alone...many young kids have birthdays on or near holidays, so they have to share their special days. But like Oliver there are ways to make the BEST of having a holiday birthday.


Even Oliver and his parents learn how to make the best of things! They find a date that can be ALL ABOUT HIM and make sure his friends and family save the date to celebrate with him. In the end, even the robin that builds a nest and raises her baby robins in Oliver's backyard cannot damper Oliver's pirate bouncy house celebration. Oliver has an amazing birthday and As Lois Wickstrom of Readers’ Favorite noted, “Oliver may never think a birthday party is complete again unless it has robins."
