Max’s whimsical new picture book Where’d My Giggle Go? helps your kids process their emotions in a fun, healthy way so they can transform from grumpy to laugh-out-loud happy.
“I felt kind of cranky. I felt kind of sad. I can’t tell you why, but I even felt mad.” For every child who sometimes feels out of sorts and doesn’t know why, Where’d My Giggle Go? helps normalize and dissipate negative emotions in a delightful way.
A perfect read-aloud, Where’d My Giggle Go? provides a natural way for you to talk with your kids or grandkids about how we all get sad sometimes and offers a reminder that we can help others find their happiness. Colorful illustrations make it great for ages 4-8, serving as a brilliant tool for classroom discussions about processing feelings and emotions and a resource to help parents discuss being sad, grumpy, anxious, or unhappy.
Where’d My Giggle Go? follows a boy who looks all over—from the circus to the bakery to his own pocket—for his giggle. After all, “No-giggle’s no fun. No fun, no sirree. No-giggle is not the best way to be.” Then he realizes that bringing happiness to others is the best way to find it himself. As he offers smiles and hugs, helps his mom wash the dishes, plays with a friend, and gives the dog a good tickle, he feels something deep, deep within start to wiggle. And before you know it, the boy starts to giggle!
