A Happy Hat by Cecil Kim


A Happy Hat by Cecil Kim

I am a hat. I am worn out here and there. I have a few holes, and even a few weeds sticking out. But I am still very much a hat. A very happy hat. I have lots of stories to tell. A Happy Hat is a sweet and upbeat tale of resilience, optimism, and hope. The life story of a hat - a very happy hat - and its various owners illustrates how dealing with disappointments and stressful situations is crucial to one's well-being. A Note to Parents written by psychologist Mary Lamia, PhD, discusses the importance of helping your child recover from adversity and encouraging a hopeful attitude. Additional tips and strategies from APA's Resilience Guide for Parents & Teachers are also included.
