Taking a Bath with the Dog and Other Things that Make Me Happy

By Scott Menchin
Illustrated by Scott Menchin

"Will likely inspire youngsters who are in a funk to seek joy in the unexpected as well as in the perfectly ordinary." — Publishers Weekly

What do you do when it seems as if nothing will make you happy? For one little girl, it’s a good time to take a survey, from subjects including a quick little rabbit (running around in a wheel) and a snazzy centipede (shoes, lots of shoes). Scott Menchin’s amusing story and his whimsical characters show us that doing what we love best can bring the biggest smiles of all.

  • A celebration of the joy in ordinary things.
  • Now in paperback.
