Snow is falling. All the animals are fast asleep in their animal homes. Slowly they awake. They open their eyes and sniff. They run. And in the middle of the forest they find a bright yellow flower growing in the snow--and they dance and laugh with joy at this first sign of spring. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

While you won't find this book shelved in the early readers since the genre hadn’t really been invented yet in 1949, The Happy Day is an ideal text for a K-1 student who is learning how to read. Black and white illustrations are engaging without being distracting, and the repetition, limited vocabulary, and simple sentence structure will enable emerging readers to experience success. The detailed pencil drawings make this title stand out, as this type of illustration is not typically seen in modern children’s literature.
