If You're Happy and You Know it!

Clap your hands and sing along to this fresh take on a traditional singalong. The multicultural children in this colorful early learner encourage action and imagination, and two full spreads at the end teach "hello" in thirty-six languages, and the names of the children and their countries of origin. Book with CD edition includes song sung by Susan Reed.

Ages 3 to 7 years

Written By: Anna McQuinn

Illustrated By: Sophie Fatus

Sung By: Susan Reed


I absolutely, positively ADORE this book! It has the most delightful illustrations depicting children from around the world and their homes. The CD is a fun addition and my kids have really enjoyed reading the story and listening to (and singing along with) the song. I loved being able to talk to my kids about all the beautiful cultures pictured. I also think it is brilliant that at the end of the book each child is pictured saying "hello" in their own language and then the next page shows each child with their name and the name of their country. We made a game of finding each child throughout the pages. It really is a very beautiful book and I would definitely recommend it!!

Thanks so much to Barefoot Books for sending us this wonderful book/CD to review!
