This charming book contains simply written messages encouraging children to spread happiness to others. The reader/listener is requested to ‘share more’ and ‘squabble less’, ‘grab less’ and ‘give more’, ‘tease less’ and ‘tickle more’, and so on. There is a page with a gentle anti-bullying message, another urging children to play outside rather than watching television, and another encouraging generosity. All themes are supported by Caroline Uff’s colourful, warm and vibrant illustrations.

The Happy Book
A great starting point for talking about both positive and negative feelings with very young children. This book may gently encourage co-operation and good behaviour.
