Every day is a gift in this exuberant picture book about finding happiness in life’s small moments

My arms aren’t big enough to hold the whole world . . .
But when I feel this happy, it’s all I want to do!
My voice isn't loud enough to express this joy!
Why isn't there a word for feeling this alive?

In this poetic and buoyant story from author-illustrator Shelley Johannes, a young child tries to measure the size of her joy and the depth of her gratitude as she embraces the beauty of the day. Reveling in simple wonders with unbridled enthusiasm, This Joy! celebrates living with arms wide open—because today is a gift!
