What I loved: I really appreciated the messaging of the book - to be happy with what you have and enjoy the things that make everyday life so great. It is sometimes fun to imagine what you would do if you won the lottery - but this book posits that happiness would be wanting to do the same things you already do even after you win lots of money or have more time. The simple and repetitive story will appeal to young readers, who may enjoy the many pictures of Selma and other sheep. The philosophical topic will keep parents busy as they think about the themes of the story.
Final verdict: A book with a lesson for parents and children, SELMA is an interesting picture book that helps the reader to imagine the meaning of happiness.
