If You're Happy and You Know It!
Holiday House, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages
In Cabrera's version of the popular children's song, various animals demonstrate the motions for the many verses. Monkey claps his hands, elephant stamps his feet, while giraffe nods his head. Concluding pages have a Hollywood Square montage of all nine animals who all cry at once "If you're happy and you know it, shout...We are!" Cheerful painterly pictures in a kaleidoscope of colors enhance the jovial mood of the song. Appearance of brush strokes gives texture to the animals, and the large black font is easy to read.
