Synopsis

Duckling Daisy knows the secret to true happiness: "If you're happy andyou know it, oink like a pig" (or buzz like a bee, squeak like a mouse, or evenquack like a duck!). Most preschoolers know the secret, too. And so they willadore Jane Simmons's board book version of one of their favorite songs: "IfYou're Happy and You Know It." Little yellow Daisy, with her lightheartedexpression and big orange feet, brings an automatic smile to every face, evenbefore she starts in on the barnyard noises. Pictorial tabs allow readers tofind their favorite verse of the song, be it the baaa-ing sheep, the cheepingchick, or the sleeping Daisy. Then they will join in the singing, and perhapseven learn a thing or two about reading along the way. Lush, lovableillustrations make this a book no card-carrying preschooler will be able toresist. Place it on the shelf next to Come Along, Daisy!, Go to Sleep, Daisy, or Daisy Says "Here We Go 'Round theMulberry Bush". (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
