STORYBOOK PARTIES is a well-written instructive book for hosting children’s parties that are based on children’s favorite storybook characters. Each of the 45 themed party ideas, divided by age group, include how to make invitations, costumes, decorations, with games and activities. It also contains prizes and party favor ideas as well as refreshments to serve your child’s guests.

Such party ideas for ages three to six include Cinderella, Curious George, and Where the Wild Things Are. For ages six to nine years old, there are suggestions on how to have an Amelia Bedelia, Madeline, or Pippi Longstocking party. For the last age group, nine to twelve years of age, your child can have a Harriet the Spy party, a Little Women party, or The Secret Garden party. Each of the themes are listed on the Contents page and in the back of the book on the Index page.

Parents who like to give their children unique, fantasy-like parties will love reading through STORYBOOK PARTIES by Penny Warner and Liya Lev Oertel.

Your child can easily become part of the story, as well as being involved in the party set-up. They can help parents make the special recipes, dress-up items, invitations, and help with game preparation. There are so many ideas incorporated in this book that it would be hard to choose just one. You’ll await your child’s next birthday anxiously, as will your child.

To get your creative-energy flowing, there are charming pencil drawn illustrations for every party theme. Turn your living room into a jungle or lair, turn your child’s playroom into a palace of sailboat, or turn your backyard into a beach, or ocean. It’s easy with STORYBOOK PARTIES.

Be inspired, let your child be the talk of the neighborhood, and host a party that you and your child will never forget.
