    One thought on “What a Party!”

    1. This book is a reminder for parents to pay a bit more attention in the phrasing of your child’s questions. This mothers response to her son's request for a friend or two to come over, should have started with asking "exactly how many people are you planning to invite?"

    2. "Bring along whoever you want and whatever you like to eat."Ana Maria Machada was an author mentioned in chapter 5 of our textbook and I was eager to read one of her books. What a Party! was written in first person and reminds readers to be careful what they wish for! This picture book tells the story of a little boy inviting many friends to his birthday party, complete with lots of food and fun! After an open birthday party invitation went out, the party was filled with many cultures of delicio [...]

    3. This children book was written as a first person who had his birthday coming up. For his birthday party, he sent our invitations saying "Come to my party it's my BIRTHDAY bring long whoever you want and whatever you like to eat." As everyone brings a friend or family members, each with some kind of food in hand, this party turned out to be the biggest, craziest, wildest party than expected. With his diverse group of friends bring food and friends along, food varied from sushi to cake, and even t [...]

    4. This book is written in first person about a boy and his birthday party. He sends out an invited that tells everyone to "bring whoever you want and whatever you like to eat". This potluck birthday party is made up of people around a community that is truely multicultural. Everyone brings a traditional dish from their country of origin. There is sushi, spring rolls, couscous, salsa, and coconut cookies. Everyone celebrates with music and dance. There are breakdancers and their rap group, salsa da [...]

    5. Be careful what you wish for! When the day for the narrator's birthday party draws near, his mother suggests that he invite a friend. She even agrees that it's okay if his friend brings someone too. That's when things go wrong--or right, as the case may be. Everyone who's invited invites someone else who invites someone else, and by the date of the party, there's quite a crowd there. Thank goodness everyone brings along something yummy to eat as well. The acrylics and oil pastel illustrations se [...]

    6.

Friends and neighbors of various ethnicities all come, bringing dishes spec [...]

    7. The narrator sends out an open invitation for his birthday party and his birthday party turns into a multicultural birthday celebration. I appreciated the very colorful illustrations by Helene Moreau that depicted the diverse crowd of people the narrator invited and the tasty looking birthday party treats they brought along to the party. Something I thought could have been better was that the narrator's name is not mentioned anywhere in the book whilst his friends and neighbors names are mention [...]

    8. A child's birthday soon turns into a raucous neighborhood party, rife with food, friends, pets, music, and dancing. Playing on the "tossed salad" metaphor of diversity rather than a melting pot, What a Party! celebrates multiculturalism by, well, celebrating. I love that this book highlights cultural differences by maintaining that we come together by sharing and celebrating those differences rather than keeping to ourselves and our own cultures. And what this book further maintains is that food [...]

    9. It's a birthday party with an open invitation for anyone who attends to bring anyone else and whatever they like to eat! Before long, the party becomes a big multicultural celebration.Illustrations were done in acrylics and oil pastel. Text reads like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Numeroff in the sense that one thing leads to another and another and so on.Great read aloud that showcases a variety of culures and some really yummy foods.

    10. MULTICULTURAL. A perfect book for introducing culture lessons in the classrooms. A young boy is having a birthday party and the news gets around very quickly. Eventually the whole neighborhood shows up and brings a traditional dish from their country. Its also a perfect book to go along with a potluck as a class activity.

    11. Love the colourful illustrations and cultural mish-mash contained within this book! The only thing that could have made it better would be to add some sort of glossary at the back of the book for parents and guardians so that when your child asks what ackee or tajine is, they can answer accurately. Did I mention the beautiful illustrations?

    12. Full review at perogiesandgyoza/2013/If there's a problem with this book, it's that there are so many appetizing pictures and no recipes! The smiles on the faces of the partiers are infectious, and this book will leave you with a smile on your face as well as a hunger in your belly.

    13. What could be better than a birthday party invitation that tells you to "bring whoever you want and whatever you like to eat?" This cautionary tale leads to a fantastic multicultural event that has dancing, singing and food from many parts of the world.Reviewer #14

    14. Come to my party and bring along someone and something to eat! What can go wrong? Nothing if you enjoy a crazy and fun party with a large variety of different types of foods. The acrylic and oil pastel illustrations enhance this tale about the joys of coming together and eating well!

    15. A distracted mother gives her permission for her son to invite "anyone you'd like" to his birthday party. His casually worded invitation that permits guests of guests and encourages the bringing of food results in an epic party that shows the upside of inclusivity.

    16. There is a lot to love about this book. But mostly I love that it has my daughter asking questions about food from different cultures, which has us talking (and learning together!) about lots of different cultures AND she's fired up about trying new and exciting foods!

    17. You have to be careful how you say things to kids.or you might end up with the party of the century!This was a good introduction to a number of Spanish cultural words and activities as well. Getting ready for Spanish in grade 4!

    18. A fun book with lots of vocabulary about different cultures, especially food. It started out sounding like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, but ended up so much better! :-)

    19. A real winner that offers up a diverse array of characters, vocabulary, and foods that may be unfamiliar to some readers.

    20. Cute story of a party that becomes much larger than intended, though this does seem to be another example of different cultures being represented primarily through food.

    21. What a birthday! The young boy in this story has a very diverse circle of friends who all end of at one terrific food fest of a party. By the time music arrives it is an event to be remembered.

    22. A mulicultural cross between a chapter in Beezus & Ramona (where Ramona invites her whole class over unbeknownst to her mother) and the If You Give books.
