4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and fun 13 Dec. 2012
By M. Palasik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a speech-language pathologist, so when I look at children's books, I'm usually looking for something I can use in therapy. With that said, this was a cute a fun book.

Mrs. Millie is always saying silly things and using words that sound similar but are not quite the word she means. She says cubcakes/cupcakes, camel/candle, and birthday partridge/party. The kindergarteners think she's hilarious and always know what she really means. Today is her birthday so the students (and their parents) are throwing a surprise birthday party for Mrs. Millie, using equally funny substitutions for words.

The illustrations are bright, colorful, and engaging and the story is simple and cute. This would actually be a fun book to use for students' birthdays as a therapy tool and ask if they would want all of those things for their birthdays.

I kind of wish that the word mistakes/confusions would have stuck to rhyming throughout, but I also understand there's only so many words that rhyme with others that you can illustrate :)

Cute book. Something fun and quick to be read for birthdays :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun For All 9 Dec. 2012
By Buddy S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This illustrated children's book examines in a light hearted way the use of a play on words by a school teacher, Mrs. Millie. Mrs. Millie is in the habit of substituting inappropriate words for similar sounding ones. For example, she says "book bugs" instead of "book bags" and "Musical Bears" instead of "Musical Chairs." Today is Mrs. Millie's birthday and her students figure that turnaround is fair play and give Mrs. Millie a thorough dose of her own medicine.

The result is great fun for the teacher, student and, most of all, young readers. This book is reminiscent of the Amelia Bedelia Collection (I Can Read Book 2) I read to my children years ago, where an extremely literal housekeeper kept both children and adults in stitches laughing at her misinterpretation of instructions she received to perform common household chores.

I highly recommend Happy Birthday, Mrs. Millie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cute and fun! 16 Jan. 2013
By A. Pohren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Happy Birthday, Mrs. Millie is a very cute story with bright, vivid, appealing and fun illustrations. The text is fun and has a nice rhyme and rhythm to it that will have young children giggling and laughing the entire way through. The play on words adds an extra dimension of fun for both children and adults (such as baboons for balloons, apple moose for apple juice, parrots for parents, camel for candle, and well, you get the picture...) the illustrations that go along with the play on words are also excellent and will induce readers and listeners to lots of laughter.

The size of Happy Birthday, Mrs. Millie is perfect for circle time, story time or cuddling in bed time. This would also be a great book to work into a project or discussion of other ways that the kids can make their own play on words. Creative, fun and perfect for young readers - preschool - 1st/2nd grade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silly story and illustrations appeal to K-2 students 13 Jan. 2013
By Karen Wilber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've read this book to my own children (aged 5 & 8) and used this as a "filler" when I substitute teach primary grades. It's been a hit in every classroom so far and really holds this kids' attention. (Sometimes I turn the book toward me and conceal the picture until I've read the mixed-up sentence.)

The illustrations are colorful and friendly and large enough to make this useful for a group storytime book. The kids all seemed to enjoy the word play and were quietly engaged with the story as they waited to see what the next page would bring. Smiles, laughs and the shared enjoyment of a silly book was a nice break in a busy day.

When I asked the K-1 students what they liked best about the book they almost all liked the "crazy pictures", especially the baboons (for balloons), the camel (for candle) and the apple moose (for apple juice).

4.0 out of 5 stars Mrs. MIllie is a Fun Read 17 Dec. 2012
By Bingo-Karen Haney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Author Judy Cox has a great sense of humor and knows little children well. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Millie is an adorable and silly rhyming story about young children who give their teacher a surprise birthday party, of sorts, and she mispronounces words they say and they have to correct her. The colorful illustrations by Joe Mathieu are well done and draw the readers attention right away. The story makes Mrs. Millie's students all laugh and it certainly made my grandson who is 2.5 laugh. He thought it definitely funny and laughed out loud when I read it to him. He wanted it read again over several times the next few days. He is just in a pre-school 2 days a week but loves his two teachers and so he found a good relationship between his two lovely teachers and Mrs. Millie to be really funny. Good for read aloud to toddlers and first reader for beginning readers.
