Empowering words that help children to express their emotions.
This little book on Happiness is part of an exciting new series exploring big topics with young children in a way that feels good.
Using carefully chosen words and phrases, such as ‘laugh’ and ‘good mood’, it creates a special moment for grown-ups and young children to focus on what it means to be happy and to experience both happy and sad feelings.
Children can discover and understand new words to help them to talk about the ups and downs of first experiences and new emotions with confidence.
The engaging art style, fun characters and hardback picture book feel make this series accessible and perfect to share.

Not only are they beautifully illustrated but the content is pitched just right for having rich conversations with young children about values like kindness and bravery.
