Finding the Birthday Cake
Helping Children Raise Their Self-Esteem
written and illustrated by Elizabeth Wagele
with Judith Dome
Walter, a most serious bird, has made a birthday cake for the most “perfect party” he is throwing for Ninosaur, his prehistoric pal. The only problem is: he seems to have lost it!
With the celebration just hours away, Walter asks his many friends to help him. He discovers that his varied friends have wonderful and very different ideas on how to find the lost cake.
Based on the ancient Enneagram theory (“ennea” is Greek for nine; “gram” means drawing), this delightful book explores the nine styles of personalities. More importantly, it teaches children how to value each other's differences, embrace diversity and create a world of peace and acceptance in fun, meaningful ways. Complete with useful tips for fostering friendship between kids, the first Enneagram book for children is a helpful tool for parents and educators.
