NEW YORK, March 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Young Happy is good at so many things, but when it comes to tying his shoes, he’s stumped. With some positive guidance from his big sister, Happy learns that anything is possible if he puts his mind to it. Happy Laces, by Silvia Autorino Galombik, is a delightful rhyming and informative picture book that tells readers, if at first you don’t succeed, tie, tie again.
The story’s colorful yellow character named Happy is sunny and upbeat, proud that he knows his alphabet and how to write his name, can help his mother cook, and goes down all the big slides.
