As soon as I began learning about the latest research in positive psychology, I wanted to share that knowledge with children. “That Makes Me Happy!” is aimed to reach 4 to 9 year olds with a story of animal characters and an ending with a “Happy Ring”. I wanted to give children an easy, fun way to practice being more positive! Just like learning any new skill, we can practice to be a more positive person. I have recorded a video to explain my thinking behind this story.
Please share your experiences if you purchase the book and read it with your children or students. I would greatly appreciate feedback!
147 Happy Rings created and counting!
I created the following coloring page to be given to children after reading “That Makes Me Happy!” A fun way to help them remember the story. Click on coloring-page to print.
Use the following page to create Happy Rings for a group of children. Click below the picture on happy-ring-circles-copy to print.
This is a short video of the biology of positivity. Thanks Margit!
