"Creating and caring for a garden serves as an apt metaphor for self-care in this sensitive story from the father-daughter team of Lasser and Foster-Lasser..... Crinkly, textured papers bring pleasing warmth to Lyles's mixed-media collages, creating an atmosphere of positivity to match the girl's confident attitude."--Publishers Weekly

"A charming and to-the-point book for addressing mindfulness with young children, perfect for classrooms and libraries." --School Library Journal

"Wonderfully entertaining from beginning to end and with an invaluable life affirming message, Grow Happy is unreservedly and enthusiastically recommended for family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections."--Midwest Book Review

"This book should lead to many good discussions around well being and each person's ability to cultivate their own contentment."--School Library Connection
