The Birthday Book is inspired by the classic Mexican birthday song “Las Mañanitas (The Mornings), which is sung to wake up a child on his/her birthday. This celebratory song is a fixture at every birthday party, and the best way to welcome a great day. In this book, we celebrate the birthday bunny from the moment his friends wake him up right on through his birthday celebration!
The high-quality construction and simple elegance of the book make it excellent for a gift for a beloved child. A free app provides grown-ups and kids alike with the tune that accompanies the song, so there’s no need to worry if you don’t know it already.

Just what we’ve been waiting for. Bright and cheery, these simple and sturdy bilingual books are great fun to read aloud and come with a lift-the-flap bonus. Thank you, Canticos!
