The Maine Birthday Book
by Tonya Shevenell, illustrated by Laura Winslow
Hardcover, 52 pages
"If it was your birthday what would you wish for?" That's the question a thoughtful chickadee named Dirigo asks his friends who have traveled from all over Maine's woods, waterways and wilderness to celebrate his birthday. Gathered around the dandelion birthday candle, each animal offers Dirigo a special wish as they take turns telling stories about their own Maine birthdays. A 52-page birthday celebration from the imagination of Maine native, Tonya Shevenell, with watercolor illustrations by Laura Winslow, The Maine Birthday Book is a conversation to be enjoyed every day of the year.
