Storytime: I am the Happiest by Anna Shuttlewood


Storytime: I am the Happiest by Anna Shuttlewood

While all the other animals are busy arguing over who is the best, only the Raccoon is happy for all of them. Although each animal is different, can they learn to appreciate each other and live together happily? In a sunny meadow there's everything the animals could dream for. But they often argue and always try to decide who is better. Everyone's saying what their quality is without appreciating the others. The giraffe is proud to be the tallest, the hedgehog is the spikiest, the pig the most round, the frog the most green...Everyone disagrees. Only the raccoon is happy for the others, he's so happy for them that he's the happiest animal that needs to dance his happiest dance. In the end his sincere joy is so infectious that all the animals join in his happy dance.


'Charming illustrations... Plenty of talking points... Very useful in the Early Years classroom.' - Parents in Touch 'This wonderful story about how we are different encourages young children to think about their own qualities and achievements and how they are unique.'
