Board book: Meet Happy Bear

Changing Faces: Meet Happy Bear. Nathan Thoms. Illustrated by Carles Ballesteros. 2017. Harry N. Abrams. 18 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Oh no! Happy Bear isn't happy anymore. Let's do something silly to make him happy again! We did it! Happy Bear is happy again! Uh-oh! Happy Bear looks worried. Let's sing a song to make him happy again! We did it! Happy bear is happy again!

Premise/plot: Happy Bear isn't always happy. Sometimes he's sad, worried, or mad. In this interactive board book, readers get the opportunity to make Happy Bear HAPPY again. His facial expressions change with the turning of the pages.

My thoughts: I enjoyed this one! I have not seen this kind of interactive book before. I think it's a cute idea. I thought the mouse and the bear were both adorable. The illustrations almost have a vintage feel to them.
