In Big Berry, the subject is one that every child can relate to, the gimmes—and why the hero Bink should be happy with what she has.

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 Big Berry: A Little Moral Story About Gratitude

"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
