This book is about a boy named Peter who sends an invitation to his friend in the mail. The big anticipation for him is if she'll show up or not. Interestingly enough, if I remember correctly, she was the only girl invited to his birthday party.
Ages 3-5

In this book, Ezra is going to have a birthday party, and asks all of his friends to come, including a girl named Amy. One stormy day he heads out to mail his invitation to Amy, but on his way over, he bumps into Amy and accidentally knocks her to the ground. He's not sure if Amy will even want to go to his party now, or how his friends will treat her if she does come.
