Here's a fun idea: When you laugh or smile--pass it on! A story about giving, sharing, and joy. 

"When you see something terrific, smile a smile and pass it on! If you chance upon a chuckle, hee hee hee and pass it on. Should you spot a thing of wonder, jump for joy and pass it on!" 

So begins Sophy Henn's ode to the excitement of sharing happiness with others. With a refrain that begs to be uttered before every turn of the page, children will eagerly read alongside their parents as they discover how wonderful--and fun!--it is to share the good things in life. After all, if you spread happiness to others, even on a gray, rainy day, when you least expect it, like a bolt out of the blue, a smile or a chuckle might be passed right back to you! This heartwarming, upbeat book is the perfect way to bring a warm ray of sunshine into every reader's life."

This book is a happiness wrapped in a wonderful story about the power of being kind. It's so easy to spread joy, and do nice things for others, and best of all it's free to do! This story does a beautiful job at telling that in a way that young readers will understand. With it's bright colorful, yet simplistic illustrations, Henn's newest picture book will easily put a smile on your face. Great for toddlers and readers with short attention spans, this is a picture book for readers of all ages. 

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.
