Truly a book for this moment, for parents, for children. As we head into an uncertain fall, we're all feeling a little ungrounded. HAPPY is a sweet reminder to relax, to savor sounds and smells, to discover the little treasures in life that bring us joy. The lessons strike just the right tone. And the whimsical illustrations sparked that joy for this reader and star-gazer. Loved it, absolutely!— Susan
