It was so much fun meeting a 7 year old author at the Decatur Book Festival. Myles Shulman wants to make the world a better place and in his poster book "Make the World Happy" he tells the story of a mean cat who loses his friend but then later reconnects with him after he apologizes. There are tips on how to act with friends and a workspace for how kids should manager their anger in order to have a happy family life. The kindergartners responded very well to the character education messages woven through this touching tale.
