Book Review: How to Make a Shark Smile - How a Positive Mindset Spreads Happiness

Author: Shawn Actor and Amy Blankson

From the Book Jacket: Ripple the dolphin just moved to a new aquarium and is excited to make some friends! But as she swims around, she notices the water is still and quiet. The eels have no zing. The neon fish don't glow. The seahorses aren't horsing around. Everyone's too afraid of a mean shark named Snark!

Ripple is determined to show her new friends that they shouldn't be afraid - it's all about mindset. They can choose to be happy! Just as the aquarium begins to liven up, Snark the shark shows up ready to prove Ripple wrong. Can Ripple get Snark to smile too?

Why It's On My Bookshelf: This is a great book about making a CHOICE to be positive. Also, when you spread happiness to others it makes it easier to choose happiness. Ripple tells Snark it's not her size or speed that makes her powerful or brave. It's her mindset. Happiness is a state of mind.
