Who doesn’t like birthdays? Bear sure doesn’t. “I do not like presents. I do not like birthday cards. I do not like balloons. I do not like parties. I do not like BIRTHDAYS!” Bear shouts in the mid-grade title, A Birthday for Bear. I would disagree– birthdays are AWESOME! (And maybe bear will change his mind?)
