Katie Morag and the Birthdays by Mairi Hedderwick
Publisher: Red Fox Picture Books
Katie Morag just can't wait for it to be her birthday - but as she goes through each month of the year, she finds that lots of other people's birthdays happen before hers. At the back of this book is a calendar showing the different characters' birthdays, with space for children to write in their own birthdays and the birthdays of their friends and family. This
book reinforces concepts such as the order of the months and the number of days in each month, and readers can enjoy working out how long there is left until Katie Morag's birthday. There is also a birthday cake recipe for children to follow!
