?Why don?t we have a small celebration here?? Shelby is a girl whose birthday is coming up. She is very excited. But she has to cancel her party so she can take care of her sick grandmother. Shelby becomes mad and upset. But she learns she can have fun. Read the book to see what happens next.

In the story Shelby learns a lesson. The lesson is even though she had to cancel her party she should be glad she could help her grandmother. If I were her, I would be glad I could help.

I thought the book was good, but very sad. In the story the illustrations are detailed and very nice.

I recommend this book to people who like sad stories with a happy ending or a surprising ending. I do not recommend this book to people who like humorous stories.
