And now Honey and Boo ask for Sonny's help blowing balloons. Sonny just wants to paint by himself, so he says, "No!" Why can't they see that Sonny doesn't have time to help? But once his friends leave, Sonny realizes he forgot that something important . . . It's Meemo's birthday! Honey and Boo have been trying to make Meemo a birthday present. Will Sonny help them make Meemo's big day special?

“Entertaining and instructive, this will be a useful preschool discussion starter.” —Booklist, on SONNY SAYS MINE!

“Hart's playful, repetitive text winningly recalls Mac Barnett's Jack books. OHora's bright digital art, often presented against monochrome backgrounds and augmented by colorful speech bubbles, keeps the focus on the expressive characters. A solid conversation opener for discussions on sharing and empathy.” —Publishers Weekly, on SONNY SAYS MINE!
