Taking a Bath with the Dog and Other Things that Make Me Happy

by

From celebrated illustrator Scott Menchin comes a wise and witty meditation on the true secret to happiness.

"I miss your smile today, Sweet Pea. What would make you happy?"

What do you do when it seems as if nothing will make you happy? For one little girl, it’s a good time to take a survey, from subjects including a quick little rabbit (running around in a wheel), a balding gent (counting rings on a tree), a snazzy centipede (shoes, lots of shoes), and other sundry characters. Enlivened by his whimsical characters, Scott Menchin’s amusing story shows us that just doing what we love to do best can bring the biggest smiles of all.
