This Makes Me Happy follows a young girl on a field trip to the fair, complete with a roller coaster, pie-eating contest, and petting zoo! But when her pesky nut allergy keeps her from having a treat with her class, the girl learns that even the happiest of days can have unhappy moments. By reflecting on her trip and recognizing the many feelings that arose during it, she is able to feel less overwhelmed--and more confident about her positively happy day.

While children enjoy expressing themselves--be it through laughter or tears--they don't always have the words to articulate their emotions. The Dealing with Feelings series is designed to give voice to what's brewing inside, showing children how to name their emotions as they also learn to read. Colorful stickers are included in each book.

Booklist Review: "From the Dealing with Feelings series comes this easy reader that describes an African American girl's day at the fair. At first, she's nervous, but her teacher shows the students a deep-breathing technique that calms. Once at the fair, her emotions range from excitement to contentment as she goes on a Ferris wheel and watches her teacher win the pie-eating contest. But a new feeling arises when she can't share the desserts because she has a nut allergy. Fortunately, her teacher shows her a way she can still feel good about the experience: she can serve the refreshments and help others enjoy the experience. The message may be too subtle for some, but most children will understand that happiness can come in a ball of other emotions, like excitement, feeling part of a team, and helping. This bright, appealing offering could be used as a discussion starter with primary-grade students.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this addition to the Dealing with Feelings series, an African-American child describes her class field trip to the county fair, illustrated in Kushnir¿s cozy, upbeat art. At the fair, she goes on a roller coaster, has her face painted, and visits the petting zoo. Even a happy day has minor setbacks¿the girl can¿t have any bake sale treats because she is allergic to nuts: ¿I feel left out. My teacher sits down next to me. She has allergies, too.¿ On the bus ride back, she reflects on her busy day: ¿Many thoughts bounce around in my head. I focus on them one at a time. What am I feeling? I am feeling happy.¿ Carbone models being mindful of all emotions, while suggesting that happiness is not always about what occurs but how one chooses to look at circumstances. Ages 4¿6. (Apr.)"
