My Heart Is Laughing

Gr 1-3–Sweetly optimistic Dani almost never lets life get her down, but her spirits flag when she encounters a pair of class bullies, an especially trying experience without the support of her best friend, who recently moved. This simple yet sensitively drawn narrative from an author with an intuitive understanding of the joys and pains of childhood makes for a delightfully reassuring tale.
