Description
Here's a fun idea: When you laugh or smile--pass it on A story about giving, sharing, and joy.
When you see something terrific, smile a smile and pass it on If you chance upon a chuckle, hee hee hee and pass it on. Should you spot a thing of wonder, jump for joy and pass it on
So begins Sophy Henn's ode to the excitement of sharing happiness with others. With a refrain that begs to be uttered before every turn of the page, children will eagerly read alongside their parents as they discover how wonderful--and fun --it is to share the good things in life. After all, if you spread happiness to others, even on a gray, rainy day, when you least expect it, like a bolt out of the blue, a smile or a chuckle might be passed right back to you This heartwarming, upbeat book is the perfect way to bring a warm ray of sunshine into every reader's life.
