Julia will be reading Princess Zara's Birthday Tradition. Why this book? Julia is excited about sharing this book that teaches an important family tradition of spreading love on your birthday. She also loves that Princess Zara is a princess of color, as Julia wants to celebrate seeing more diversity in children’s book characters (and all literary characters).
When Princess Zara wakes up, she thinks it’s going to be another great birthday.
Then her parents share an old family tradition with her: spreading the love.
Soon, Zara is learning there’s much more to birthdays than cake and presents. This tale, which teaches the true value of giving back, is perfect for bedtime, circle time, or any time!
