Read full description of the books:
Brian Won's debut picture book celebrates the power of small acts of kindness, when received or given out, to transform your mood and perspective on situations.
What starts out as a grumpy day for elephant quickly becomes reason to celebrate when an unexpected package is delivered to his front doorstep. Inside is the box is an assortment of colorful hats, all of which Elephant dons at once, one on top of the other. As Elephant cheers, "HOORAY FOR HAT!", the thought comes to mind that he should visit his friend, Zebra.
The story progresses as such, as the growing band of animals visits grumpy friends and changes each new friend's mood with the gift of a hat and the infectiousness of good company. All throughout, Won's illustrations place the characters at central focus with little to no background illustration apart from what is needed for context (a handrail here, a stump there). One detail that especially caught my eye was the look of anticipation on the faces of each of the hat-wearing friends as they approach the next grumpy friend. The expression is always one of concern and contemplation, leaving space for the reader to offer up how the animals can cure their friend's grumpiness. With a hat, of course!
The text art in each exclamation of "Hooray for hat!" is colorful, offsetting the otherwise black inked type, and appears larger and larger with each new friend encounter. Readers will pick up on this detail for sure, raising their voices louder and louder as they cheer, "HOORAY FOR HAT!".
Brian Won has created a memorable picture book that not only celebrates the importance of contagious happiness, but also reminds us to pay forward those random acts of kindness.
