Description

In Rainy Day, Glub-Glub worries so much about getting wet that he almost misses all the fun of frolicking in the rain.

HAPPYLAND introduces three friends—Bink, Clyde, and Glub-Glub—in a series of delightful adventures that illustrate issues including sharing, gratitude, and worry.

There’s nothing more important for little kids entering preschool than to be emotionally ready—ready to separate from their parents, to mix and play with new children, to broaden their sense of the world. HAPPYLAND, from award-winning children’s author Dan Yaccarino, is the board book series that gives kids, and their parents, the language they need to take these emotional steps.

Praise For Rainy Day: A Little Moral Story About Worry (Dan Yaccarino's Happyland)

"Yaccarino makes smart use of his limited text—his wordless spreads say quite a bit about his characters’ feelings—and his clean, brightly colored cartooning and lightly delivered message will make readers want to spend more time with this trio." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
"In one of three board books kicking off the Happyland series, Yaccarino introduces a trio of friends named Bink, Clyde, and Glub-Glub. Awakening to a rainstorm, fishlike Glub-Glub—somewhat ironically—“did not like the rain. He worried about going outside.” But go outside he does, in an orange slicker and boots, and when he sees Bink and Clyde dancing in puddles, their happy enthusiasm proves infectious. Yaccarino makes smart use of his limited text—his wordless spreads say quite a bit about his characters’ feelings—and his clean, brightly colored cartooning and lightly delivered message will make readers want to spend more time with this trio. Available simultaneously: Birthday Cake and Big Berry. Up to age 4." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
