I Can Be Happy, Too (hardcover)

It isn’t always easy
to control my feelings,
but as long as I can help it,
I choose to be happy!

In simple rhyme accompanied by Scripture verses and sweet, expressive illustrations, I Can Be Happy, Too teaches children that while we can’t control the bad things that happen to us, we can control how we respond to disappointment and adversity.

As essential as emotions are, they often prevent our children (and us!) from responding to the world in the best way. Learning how to respond to life’s ups and downs positively empowers our children and helps them mature into emotionally healthy adults.
