Happy Birthday to You! by Dr. Seuss tells what the birthday bird dos in Katroo. This would be a great book to read to any birthday boy or girl. Dr. Seuss writes in a way that whoever reads the book will feel special. Students can learn about birthdays in Katroo and how great it is to be yourself. I love this book and every year, when I was younger, my parents would read this book to me. The part that stuck out the most to me is, "Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive that is you-er than you!" That always made me feel good because I felt irreplaceable and I felt that I was important. I think that it is important for people to feel that way. You have a totally different outlook on life. ( )

I have always loved reading books by Dr. Seuss because of all the great rhyming that they contain. I specifically chose to read this book because it was about birthdays, and as children everyone looks forward to that special day where everything gets to be about the birthday boy or girl. This book was something very fun to read and should be read to kids on their birthday just to remind them how great they are! ( )

Happy Birthday To You by Dr. Seuss is a book using rhyming that tells about what happens at birthdays in Katroo. In Katroo, they have birthday birds that grow there and go to every child on their birthday and grants them the wish of whatever they want to do.

I like this book a lot because it uses rhyme to teach children about birthdays. It is also a fun book to get children thinking about what they would want to do for their birthdays even though it cannot be on as grand a scheme.

I would use this book to read each month when we celebrate the birthdays for that month. It would be a fun book to read.

An excellent book to read to children about a boy and a fairy tale like bird. It takes the boy to places he has never ventured. The fairy-tale like bird takes him to a pool with many steps and fountains and feeds him all kinds of luxurious foods and helps him feel worthy of his birthday. The pool has many steps and fountains and he could just dive from one place to another. ( )

"Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!" Since 1959, Happy Birthday to You!—Dr. Seuss’s joyous ode to individuality—has allowed readers to experience firsthand the thrill of celebrating a birthday as it is done in Katroo. Awakened by the Birthday Bird, you (the reader) are swept out of town on a Smorgasbord’s back to begin a day and night of feasting and feting in such Seussian splendor that it will take 20 days to sweep up the mess!
