The Best Birthday board and picture books by Meadow Rue Merrill are engaging illustrated books for children one to four and four to seven years old.
Six-year-old Molly is feeling a little jealous of her cousin Sammy, who is having a birthday party at Lantern Hill Farm. Birthdays mean gifts! Molly is excited to hear there’s a treasure hunt—treasures are even better than gifts! With their list of riddles, the children embark on a scavenger hunt that reveals the greatest treasure of all is God’s love! Molly and the other children learn that even better than gifts, they can have a second birthday by choosing to be members of God’s family.
Holidays are an opportunity for celebration and a time to create family traditions and memories. Yet often the emphasis shifts from the reason for the holiday to making the children the center of the celebration. The Lantern Hill Farm series of picture books and board books is designed to provide parents and grandparents entertaining stories with easy-to-recreate family activities that allow the child to be part of the holiday but not the center of it.
