Mommy, Where's My Birthday? (Paperback)
Not in the store. We can order it and should have it in store in 3-5 business days.
How do you tell a child born on Feb. 29 that his birthday is only on the calendar once every four years? Mommy, Where's My Birthday? is a children's story that answers this prickly question. Jamar is a curious and friendly little boy who asks his mother this question after attending a friend's birthday party. Just when should Jamar celebrate his birthday? His mother's efforts to explain leap years and how our calendar works will be informative for everyone, not just "leap babies." Author Lakisha Cornell's oldest son was born on leap day and she is often asked when her family celebrates it. When Cornell researched the subject, she found there weren't many references that would appeal to children. Born in Chester, Pennsylvania, and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Cornell works in the retail industry and now lives with her family near Philadelphia. She is inspired by the writing of Terry McMillan.
