The Feel Good Book

Todd Parr. Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, $15.99 (32pp) ISBN 978-0-316-07206-9

Children's physical and emotional wellbeing take center stage in a trio of fall titles. The first, The Feel Good Book by Todd Parr, offers observations about experiences that give children a glow: ""Reading a book under a tree feels good"" and ""Watching your grandma and grandpa dance feels good""; helping others also merits several mentions (""Showing the new kid around feels good""). Parr's signature illustrations, bordered by thick black lines and filled in with retro tangerines and mauves, are cheerful and bright.
