Happy Right Now

Cover: 'Happy Right Now'

Staff Review: "Happy Right Now" by Julie Berry


Everyone has a range of emotions that they go through on a daily basis. Sometimes, an event or an object triggers that emotion, and other times that person feels that emotion for no reason at all. Happy Right Now looks at what makes an individual happy and choosing to be happy. Chores and the "worry monkey" are things that don't typically make people happy but Julie Berry’s character looks at these things from a different perspective. In this book, the character chooses to be happy despite dealing with unpleasant situations. 

The message that this book will be appreciated by kids and adults alike, no matter what stage in life they are at.
