Picture Book Wednesday: Finding Your Happiness

These books are all about feelings - happiness especially.

This board book is super cute. It talks about what makes us happy. Then it asks the reader what makes them happy. 

I read this in my outreach storytimes and it was great. I asked the kiddos if the moments in the book made them happy too. 

The beginning of the book talks about happy moments as father and son are outside walking. But soon a storm comes and those feelings turn into something quite different.

I loved this book - first because it's a father and son talking about their feelings together. Second because it gives coping mechanisms for when you're feeling afraid. Third because it's true-  no storm lasts forever. Fourth because it talks about how feelings are never silly or something to be embarrassed about. And finally fifth because of the resources at the end of the book. 

And now I'm going to ask, what makes you happy?
