Birthdays are a major event in every child's calendar!
The anticipation is almost as exciting as the celebration itself, although once the weeks (or months!) of waiting are over and the day finally arrives it can be a little overwhelming!
There are some brilliant children's books about birthdays and birthday parties that explore the highs and lows of the big day. We've picked out some of our favourites, from picture books to young fiction. Birthday books are lovely to read in the run up to your child's birthday to share in their excitement or to give as a birthday present.
