Let's Be Happy
This is a fantastic book that I wish could be handed to every new parent to read to their children over and over again. The message, of creating your own happiness and doing so by doing what's right and giving to others, is priceless and one that every child deserves to be taught.
My favorite pages have the following text: " 'Cause time after time/ I've happened to find/ That just being happy/ Begins in my mind./ So I choose to be happy and offer some light...." CHOOSE to be happy! Kids love to have control and feel their power and I think there is no more positive reason to teach them to use their skills and energy than for creating their own happiness.
The last line says it all "I've learned that it's true, When I'm giving out happiness...Then I'm happy too!"
