(From the publisher):
Kirsten is excited about the springtime surprises coming to the Larson's farm -- including a big barn and a tiny baby. But changes bring new worries and more work, too. First Kirsten is afraid for Mama's health. The caring for a baby seems to make her life nothing but chores. Soon Kirsten doesn't have time to help with the surprise she and her friends are planning for their teacher. And when she has to miss school to help out at home, she worries that her friends will forget her. But Kirsten's hard work is rewarded, and her tenth birthday becomes a celebration of family and friendship.
