Come along with Molly as she thinks about all the things, places, and people that make her happy.
It’s a new day, and Molly is waking up. She doesn’t feel sad, or worried, or sleepy, or angry. Today, Molly will be going to the beach, so she feels happy. At breakfast, Molly’s little brother is upset in his high chair. Molly thinks about what might make him feel happier—like a bottle or his rattle. When her mom takes Molly and her little brother to the beach, Molly makes a friend. This makes her happy too.
Will Molly’s emotions change throughout the day? Can her choices make her feel better about what’s happening around her? Come along with Molly as she thinks about all the things, places, and people who make her feel happy.
A simple conversation starter about emotions, Happy Day subtly introduces young readers to the idea that feelings can be subjective. More importantly, it shows how Molly’s choices play a role in the happiness of herself and others. Written by Harriet Ziefert, illustrated by Marilyn Janovitz, and published by Blue Apple Books.
