As she retraces her footsteps she discovers there are many different ways to share happiness.

Readerly Mom's Rating

It might not have the most compelling story or illustrations, but this is a sweet little book with a good message. It’s simple enough for toddlers to follow and brief enough to keep them engaged until the end. It would be great for beginning a conversation or pre-school lesson about what makes us happy and how we can share our happiness with the people around us!
