Synopsis

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.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
