Show Me Happy

Show me happy. Show me helping. Show me sharing when we play. Show me NOISY, Show me quiet. Show me putting things away. From the team that created A Kiss Means I Love you, this new book of engaging photos will “show” early learners simple actions and concepts that all children learn as they begin to socialize and communicate. Lively, charming photos illustrate real kids doing common activities like helping and sharing or pushing and pulling. A perfect companion to the first book, Show Me Happy is a delightful read-aloud that will make any story time expressive and fun.

  • The large photographs clearly communicate concepts like up and down, and actions like pushing and pulling, creating many opportunities for adult-child discussions while reading.

    - Publishers Weekly

  • The text and images are clear and uncluttered. Young readers may feel inspired to act along with the pictures. A fine addition to most picture book collections.

    - School Library Journal

  • A sweetness in the images and the text elevates the book from sheer simplicity to usefulness in providing behavioral role models. The use of near-rhymes is a welcome relief from texts that sacrifice meaning for exact rhyme.

    - Kirkus Reviews

  • The gentle, swaying rhythm of the text makes it fun to read aloud, with clever, unforced rhymes that won’t trip the tongue.
