The poetic text is sweet without being saccharine. The words convey all the ways a family loves a child through thick and thin with humor and a touch of reverence. I was intially unsure whether my daughter would be engaged by this less-story and more-poem type of text, but she often recites the lines right along with me.
And then there are the illustrations...just amazing. The colors, textures, and images draw the reader into a bright and shining world that is both wide and oh-so-cozy. Even on the pages where the text speaks of sadness or sickness, you feel somehow safe and content. Each spread features the main characters along with "hidden" vignettes featuring the little girl's dolls and a maverick moon who follows along with the sentiments page by page.
I write an e-newsletter for my local moms' group, and this book was the reason I decided our newsletter needed a "Book of the Month" column. "When You Are Happy" was the first book featured, and I truly hope that every one of the 135 moms in our group picks up a copy to share with her kids.
