Fun Book Birthday Party

My nephew Jon David just turned two. His mom planned the CUTEST birthday party for him that we attended last weekend. The invitation said to bring a book, old or new, for the birthday boy. She had the Very Hungry Caterpillar tablecloths, plates, and napkins. His grandmother (my mother-in-law) read the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to the boys and girls. The birthday boy obviously loved it!
His other grandmother has been many mission trips to India and Costa Rica, where her job is to work with children teaching them about Jesus. She uses a flannel-graph set to tell stories about Jesus – His birth and His life. She brought her flannel-graph stuff and told the Christmas story to the kiddos. She is very animated when she tells it, and the kids were enthralled.

She had my girls’ full attention!

The birthday boy had a great time with his friends, and I hope he got a whole new stock of books to read!

Happy birthday, little buddy! And thanks for inviting us to your cool book party!

    I LOVE this picture of Patterson and MA. Patterson is indeed enthralled and enjoying every minute of it! Love that happy face. MA is intent, and I'll bet thinking of how she could do this flannel board "stuff". Shows the difference in their personalities.
