What a Party!

Machado, Ana Maria. What a Party! Groundwood Books. 2013. ISBN: 9781554981687 
The story is about a boy whose birthday is coming up and his mother suggests that he invite a friend over.  He then decides to ask his friends by writing an invitation to come over for his birthday.  The language is relatively simple but would be easier to read aloud since there are multicultural words used.  The illustrations caught my eye because they are very bright and colorful.  The illustrations helped make the book whole as they show multiculturalism throughout the book, which I liked.  I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it be read to children ages 5 to 10.
