No Birthday for Mara
The day that Mara waited for all year long has finally arrived!
She wakes up excitedly knowing that it is her birthday:
a perfect day, the best day of them all. Oh, yes! Mara is sure
that great things will take place today! But, instead, something
strange happens when Mom doesn’t even give her a birthday
hug… nor her Dad… or Sandy, her babysitter.
They act as if it were just any ordinary day… Have they all
forgotten about Mara’s birthday? Will someone, anyone,
remember about her day? And most importantly… will she get
the polka-dotted baby elephant she asked for a present?
This fun book includes four coloring pages with writing prompt
and a brief "The Way We Feel" section at the end of the book,
that can help parents and children talk about emotions and the
way we feel throughout our day.
