Look long enough, and you can’t help but start to smile yourself. Read the text and enjoy the rest of the illustrations inside and you just might start feeling good all over.
I don’t care if you are an adult or child, this book is a bright and shining spot in an ailing world.
The gift edition of Hooray for the Planet ends with “hooray for no reason at all” followed by a prayer of thanksgiving. This should be a welcome gift for libraries, elementary schools, and many of your friends and relatives.
The Bahai Edition includes an an extra page and ends with the declaration “I’m so happy to be a Bahai because it leaves room in my heart for everyone!” What a great way to establish a sense of Baha’i identity in children that is inclusive and uplifting.
