A Child's View of Happiness

Happiness and sadness live right next door. 
Why not take happiness out to the zoo? But if you find sadness lock him in the loo?

  4. Hi Deborah
    I found your blog while searching for pictures of this book. I have just written a blog post about it. I have a picture and some words in it. My school entered the competition and the winning children received a copy of the book. I hope you don't mind if I 'borrow' a picture - I will post a link to your blog.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message and brighten up my day. Merci!
