The Lovereading4Kids comment

October 2015 Debut of the Month Happy! Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth!’ Pharrell William’s song is irresistible, guaranteed to cheer you up and fill you with optimism whatever your mood. Now he’s taken the words and turned them into a bright and equally cheery photographic picture book. Happy children beam out from the pages, playing with fun-looking cardboard props and dancing to the music that all readers will have playing in their heads. To be perfectly honest the text works better in the song than on the page, but this is still a book that will bring a smile to your face every time you open it, and that’s got to be a good thing. ~ Andrea Reece
