Description

Oh no, no one has remembered Harriet's birthday!

On a trip to town, Harriet gets upset when no one wishes her a happy birthday. She hurries home to celebrate by herself, bumping into friends all too busy to talk to her. When she gets home, she is shocked to see all of her friends there in a surprise birthday party!

A touching story about friendship and kindness that would make a lovely birthday gift.

Beautifully illustrated, QEB’s Storytime series introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Featuring charming animal and human characters, the books explore important social and emotional themes like friendship, gratitude, perseverance, and overcoming fears. A Next Steps page at the back provides guidance for parents and teachers.
