Emily’s birthday has finally arrived, and she’s so excited! She’s having a party with all her friends, complete with a special magic castle cake and a sparkly welcome walkway to greet her friends. She’s even having a famous children’s TV show magician to entertain her friends!
At least that’s what was planned. But a morning rainstorm soon washes away the hopes of the best birthday party ever, leaving Emily to fear it is going to be the worst!
Emily’s mom helps her through the disappointment by sharing all the fun things she did at her birthday parties when she was a little girl. Through resourcefulness, a few found objects, and a little creative thinking from their “Imagination-Inspiration” hats, Emily’s mom helps Emily see that even though things don’t work out the way you planned, you can have a lot of fun and excitement by trying new things and experiences.
Skeptical at first, Emily is drawn into the excitement and fun of some old-fashioned children’s games and a homemade birthday cake. Her dad, her little brother, and even their dog, Barky, get swept into the growing excitement, and her friends agree that her party was the best birthday party ever!
