Filled with happiness and positivity, it celebrates the good things in life, and puts a smile on any reader's face Fans of positive news shows like Some Good News with John Krasinski will find similarly cheerful and comforting content in this book, while readers of all ages who enjoyed the unique fabric art illustrations of Salley Mavor or the Cozy Classics series will appreciate Martin Smatana's art made from upcycled scraps of cloth.
