Where Can We Have The Party? by Deb Hockenberry.

How would you do to turn a friend’s frown upside down?

This is just what Giraffe wonders about. “I know,” Giraffe thinks. “I’ll have a party!” But where can he have the party? He sits on a swing, puts his head in his hooves, and thinks.

Monkey, Elephant, and Snake try to help their friend by offering ideas. Elephant wants to have the party in the sea. Monkey thinks her treehouse would be a great place to party! Snake thinks her den would be a perfect place for a party. Could any of these ideas work?

Join Giraffe, Monkey, Snake, and Elephant as they learn about friendship, birthdays, and problem-solving in ‘Where Can We Have The Party?’. Makes a great gift for any time of the year!

Reviewed by Children’s Author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne: An adorable story children will love!

I loved this book by Deb Hockenberry. It’s twenty pages of fun and learning. The animal friends want to have a party for Chimpanzee. Everyone makes a suggestion for the perfect place to hold the big event. Elephant thinks the party should be in his favorite place, the river, but the birthday boy, Chimpanzee doesn’t like water. Snake has an idea, too, but the place he likes is too small. This is a delightful book little children will adore. Not only is the story fun and educational, but the cute, colorful, illustrations are wonderful. Children will want to read this book over and over. It’s sure to keep them engaged and smiling. Congratulations, Deb on a job well done. No doubt your first book will be a huge success. it’s sure to keep them engaged and smiling. Congratulations, Deb on a job well done.
