It may seem odd to have a book in the 'behavioural problems' section called 'The Happy Book', but, trust me, it is about behaviour. In wonderfully bright two-page spreads, we meet a brother and sister and their friends, and they (and we) learn to 'Snivel less! Snuggle more' and 'Shout less! Sing more', as well as to 'Grab less! Give more'. The jolly alliterative text is a joy, and the simple but expressive pictures make a really coherent whole. Great for nursery classes as well as home.
