Praise For 100 Things That Make Me Happy

"The tightly rendered illustrations, which usually appear in twos or three against white backgrounds, have a refreshing emotional reticence; the kids' happiness is shown as matter-of-fact and grounded rather than euphoric or manic. And then there are the descriptions themselves, eloquent in their unfussiness...Schwartz isn't the first to try a compendium of this sort, but she sets a new benchmark."

— Publishers' Weekly, starred review

"It is a book chock-full of fun—what more could one want?"

— Kirkus Reviews

"It’s all very, very sweet, but with the occasional offbeat example that will satisfy out-of-the-box thinkers."

— Elissa Gershowitz

"Schwartz’s distinctive pictures in brilliant colors would make anyone happy...a magical romp through the senses and delights of being human."

— Lolly Gepson
