Monica Sheehan has taken her bestselling book be happy. and created an irresistible little gem for people BIG & small. So open it up and get inspired to . . .
Sing and dance a little! Have fun! Be kind—be brave! And be the best YOU.
A great introduction to the idea that happiness isn’t something that happens to you, it’s something you make for yourself with your actions and your attitude. It’s geared towards a little older crowd than my 18 month old son, but by adding a little discussion about what’s happening with the dog and mouse on each page we both enjoy it, and it’s honestly a great reminder for me as a mom to be mindful about CHOOSING to be happy.
I love the encouraging, hopeful, and happy messages in this book! I appreciate the reminders of qualities we can have or develop to help us be happy. :) I think it’s great that the end of the book is a question and that it can get you talking further about what makes you happy!
