Each of us is struggling with stay at home orders. Children are as well. Parents and grandparents may be dealing with children that are lonely, bored or unhappy. The book I am recommending this month is 100 Things That Make Me Happy written by Amy Schwartz. It is most suitable for the young ones, ages 3 to 6 but I confess it makes me happy as well.
It is a celebration of 100 everyday things that will make you smile. The book is written in rhyming couplets from slippery floors to dinosaurs, from goldfish to a birthday wish and everything in between. Amy Schwartz creates a wonderful synergy between the art and text that is sure to please. The pages are oversized, drawing the child’s imagination into the book.
