Great rhyming book

This book is one I love reading to my daughter. The rhythm of the rhymes makes it move along in a fun and almost musical way. Great writing by Deborah Dieson, who uses words not typically found in many children's books (agast, squelchy) and who uses funny descriptors for the characters that make this a fun read for parents too ("she was slightly impolite). I highly recommend this book!

Be Happy

A cute little book about a fish that just can't seem to be happy.

Family loves it

Cutest book ever! And the illustration on the back sums it up when you turn the book upside down. It has a beautiful message for kids and adults alike. Even the "sequel" book we love as much. Great author =)
