The news is almost always depressing. Lots of crisis and strife, doom and gloom. So why not turn to a picture book, or a children’s book, for a pick-me-up?
I think children’s books–picture books and middle-grade books, especially–hold joy in them, happiness, laughter. They can help readers feel rejuvenated, or remember to dream or have fun. The picture books that immediately come to mind are:
Laugh-out-loud funny, uplifting.
Magical, imaginative, and fun.
Fun and deeply satisfying.
Inspiring, uplifting, encouraging.
Playful, delightful, uplifting and encouraging.
Funny, imaginative, and playful.
What are some of your favorite, uplifting picture books?
This short post from the Billington Library reminded me of all this.
