Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's fun and goofy and light-hearted. From drawing hand turkeys, to listing your favorite scents, to describing how you'd spend an unplugged day, it's all about simple joys that are unique to you. I couldn't help but smile the whole way through." - Perfectsentiment.blogspot.com

" I cannot wait to dig in." - Kotori

"Being a fan of happiness, I was thrilled to receive a copy of "The Happy Book" for review. It's filled with creative, thought-provoking exercises to make you happy! Basically, it's a scrapbook waiting to be filled with your own happiness.
" - Paper Schmaper

"This book allows you to look past that put that negativity behind you." - Jo My Goodness

"A journal to celebrate what makes me happy? Yes, please! The book is terrific, because it's basically a place where you can document what makes you happy— lots of room to write things down, questions and prompts to spark your happiness and get you thinking in a positive and fun way, and to discover and celebrate the special things that make you happy!

" - Pecannoot

Library Journal
The authors' premise is that if you are feeling sad and have completed the pages of this workbook, you can pick it up, read a page, and feel good again. Quotes and anecdotes fill the top and bottom of the pages, leaving the center blank for you to fill in your happiness thoughts, draw a picture of something that makes you happy, or journal about what you did on summer vacation. This is nothing more than a notebook filled with doodles and aspirations. The premise that people need to be reminded of reasons to be happy when they are feeling down is solid, but this is borderline ridiculous.

I found this book to come to me as a sign. One night i was talking with a friend on the hone and i asked why is it s hard to just be happy? In the morning on my fb feed there it was the happy book not from the friend I spoke to but through some other page. went out to try to find it right away thinking that it was a sign from my guardian angel to make things happen....

A great "work book" to discover our inner child and what makes us happy. I highly recommend this book along with their new book, the secret me book!

I suffer from bipolar depression and needed a book to help me realize things to be grateful for and what things make me happy. This book does just that. It's fun to fill out and it's fun to go back and read what you wrote!

Ok, so the book looks a little dorky to have lying around, but I really love it! Within just a few minutes of writing I was feeling pretty good- realized how many simple little things there are in life with the power make me happy. Especially for ppl who don't journal consistently, this is a great way to start putting pen to paper with simple, effective prompts. Mostly its creating lists, so its a no brainer. I'd recommend, it put a smile on MY face!
