Star is Happy by Marion Brownlie is an adorable book for children that conveys a beautiful message of finding joy in all the simple things in life that we see around us. Star is happy. There are so many nice things to see. Star laughs, swings, and plays all day long. Everything around Star is fascinating and brings a smile to Star's face; be it when the bubbles burst, when the dog chases its tail, or even when the breeze dances and plays with the leaves. Star never hides laughter because laughter is fun and laughter is happiness. Star goes to bed happy and smiling, remembering all the good things people have said.
The story is delightful, bright, and lively and so are the illustrations. They give the story a good pace and movement and breathe life into all the scenes. It's a good bedtime storybook and all parents and grandparents should read it out to their kids and grandkids to make them understand the joys that surround them and how to appreciate the small things in life. The book is also good for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries as it encourages happy and beautiful thoughts in children.
The innocence and beauty of childhood has been captured perfectly by the author and it will help bring peace, love, and happiness into the lives of every child. Books like this are perfect for children to teach them to appreciate and love the simple joys that they see around them every day.
