Gr 1-3-Walter is having a birthday party complete with cake, ice cream, and horseback riding, and his best friend, Iris, can hardly wait for the day to arrive. They bathe Rain and comb her mane, Iris makes her a special birthday medallion, and Walter's parents assure him that the festivities will run smoothly. Walter is so busy making things just right that he doesn't realize that Rain is ever so close to giving birth. This easy reader is chock-full of universal kid banter, and the child-friendly illustrations in pen and ink provide the perfect backdrop as these two pals go about their everyday lives among family and friends.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
