Rylant, Cynthia. Brownie & Pearl Step Out
Brownie is a bit shy to actually knock at the door, but not Pearl who boldly enters through the cat door. Good for you Pearl! Brownie has to knock now and at the end of the party, is very happy she did. The color palette used by Brian Briggs first drew me to this new birthday book by Cynthia Rylant. The cover is eye-catching and very cutsie and the story is fun to share aloud and even great for a beginning reader to share with their younger sibling who will be attending their first birthday party. They are both excited to go, yet when they get to the door Brownie is shy and doesn't want to knock on the door. She even thinks about going home.
