Tease less . . . tickle more!
Shout less . . . sing more!
Worry less . . . wonder more!

With a cheerful message about sharing, giving, and being kind to others,Get Happy will show any child how to turn a frown into a giggle, spread the joy around, and live life to the fullest. Perfect for the youngest of readers, it won't be long before everyone knows how to get happy!

Get Happy is a wonderful story that teaches kids how they can be happier by turing their frowns into giggles, squabbling to sharing, shouting to sharing, worrying to wondering and so much. This brightly colored, cutely illustrated book will capture the attention of toddlers and younger children. It's a fabulous teaching tool for parents, teachers and just about anyone who is around younger children. I adore the illustrations and the simple words and highly recommend picking this book up today!
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
