Grammy Award winner, Pharrell Williams, has taken his mega-hit song, Happy, to children in a large-format picture book with delightful artwork that shows joyful children from all walks of life doing all sorts of fun things. The text of the book is literally the words of the song; nothing more. The illustrations in this book allow the reader no matter his or her age, to use imagination in play, and to see him- or herself being happy in many different roles.
This book is a keeper, that is, young children will keep it for years, and read over and over again as they grow a little older. The book is so cheerful and, well, happy, that parents will never tire of reading it to their little ones. Below is the link for this book, and other books by this author. I’m not sure if the others are appropriate for children — but wanted all the links to be for the same author whenever possible.
