It's a Happy Face Day--Simple Rhymes for Happy Times captures the innocence of childhood in poetry, and the wisdom of age in prose. Each catchy verse describes a "Happy Face Day" from a child's point of view. Grandma's simple comments and questions validate the child's observations, gently expand knowledge, and stimulate conversation. A thematic pen-and-ink drawing and a unique happy face for each chat charms one to turn the page. Each exchange is complete so the book may be read chat-by-chat, a few pages at a time or all at once. As reading skills develop it will become a kid's favorite to read alone.
