Unwrapping Some Illustrations
I love the soft expressive illustrations. They are engaging and relatable to a wee one. The rhyming text is a celebration of a precious newborn that is welcomed with anticipation and joy into a family.
The sweet book is short and portrays how a baby grows and develops. It would be a perfect gift for a baby shower, expecting parent or a baptism.
I love that all the proceeds from "The Birthday Books" support Alex's Lemonade Stand to raise awareness, funds, and assistance for children and families affected by childhood cancer. The author has included a segment that allows a parent to record memories and wishes for her child at the end of the book. I highly, highly recommend this book.

Message from Gina
I am so excited to share The Birthday Books with you! What started as an idea for a baby shower gift (that I couldn't believe didn't already exist), has turned into a serendipitous journey that will hopefully not only provide families with a beautiful tradition, but also support families affected by pediatric cancer with the funds and research they need and deserve! Thank you to those who shared their stories and pointed me in the direction of the very worthy, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
I am grateful for the opportunity to share this sweet collection with families and the villages that support them. As a mother of three who have quickly grown from babies - to toddlers - to small humans, the moments are precious and fleeting. My hope is this tradition gives families the chance to slow down, reflect, and share their stories and wishes with one another because - as we know - it is our family traditions that bind us and our wishes that set us free!
