The Happy Book

The Happy Book

David Cameron, apparently determined to legislate for the nation’s sense of contentment, would doubtless approve of this perky recipe for a happy life: if only the voters would learn to snivel less, and snuggle more, eh, Dave? Setting aside bitter cynicism for a moment, this gentle look at how to get the most possible enjoyment out of every day is surprisingly powerful, contrasting alternative responses to familiar situations using simple, two-word exclamations and charmingly detailed illustrations. As part of a KS1 topic on ‘ourselves’, it offers a useful starting point for discussions about the way we express our feelings, and how that expression can affect others. How many other less/more pairings can your class list? And will anyone spot the alliterative element?
