Taking a Bath with the Dog and Other Things that Make Me Happy
Scott Menchin

E MENCHIN

In order to answer her mother’s question about what would make her smile, a girl first asks various people, animals, and even the moon what makes them happy. What do you do when it seems as if nothing will make you happy? For one little girl, it’s a good time to take a survey, from subjects including a quick little rabbit (running around in a wheel), a balding gent (counting rings on a tree), a snazzy centipede (shoes, lots of shoes), and other sundry characters. Enlivened by his whimsical characters, Scott Menchin’s amusing story shows us that just doing what we love to do best can bring the biggest smiles of all.
