The Birthday 

Good for the Past Tense.  A narrated story book. 

This is a simple description of a traditional English Birthday and Birthday Party for a young child. 

Birthdays are very similar wherever you live. There are , however, usually a few traditions which are not common. 

In this video the children play traditional English musical games.

They also pull ‘CRACKERS.’ 

I apologise for this video being very ‘girly ‘!  I originally drew the pictures and made the book for a little girl’s birthday!
