SUMMARY: This book begins with this awesome quote: "The secret to happiness is to start by doing things that make you happy." It then proceeds to give 100 ideas of things you can do to make yourself happy like find a hobby, volunteer, give a hug, etc. It also has some adorable smile-worthy pictures along the way to boost your happiness as you read the book. The writing and pictures are geared towards the middle grade (ages 8-12) crowd.

REVIEW: I always love books that encourage happiness and this book was no exception. It is rich with so many ideas that it can be read over and over and over again. With each reading, the reader can pull something new from it. The book has great variety. It is not just a list of things, but has cute pictures and stories of people who have done things to make themselves happy. It also gives step by step instructions for some of the choices. Of course my favorite happy activity was #29 "Eat Chocolate!" I highly recommend this book for your home as well as for classroom use. There are so many ways this book could be used to teach lessons, I couldn't even begin to count them.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: This book is advertised for grades 3-7 or ages 8-12 which is perfect. Ages 6 and 7 could also benefit from reading this book if they are on a very high reading level.
