This would be a great addition to a story time about birthdays. The story is song lyrics to a song by Grammy award-winner Tom Chapin. Read the story through once, then play the song while turning the pages with the lyrics. Speaking from experience, showing the illustrations and playing music together go over very well with a preschool audience!
