I admit, I am somewhat questioning myself by counting This Book Is Literally Just Pictures of Cute Animals That Will Make You Feel Better towards a book I have read. Because, as the title says, it is only photographs of cute animals. Smith Street Books created a counter book for someone who needs a quick item for someone.
However, we all do need this book. It is a great “get well” gift or “having a bad week” gift, even a “housewarming/hostess” gift. It could be for the child who loves animals (though it is done in the traditional hardcover and paper for the pages counter book format and therefore not actually very “young kid” friendly). It would make a lovely coffee table book (even though it is fairly petite in size; but not “get lost” small). It would be fantastic on your desk if you were a teacher or librarian and the students could browse when having a bad moment. I can see this in the dentist office, doctor’s office or other waiting rooms. I can see this in a therapist’s office. And you could put it in your work desk/area and when you or a coworker is feeling down, here, have a Pooped Panda look. Or a Frazzled Squirrel look. Or one funky llama/alpaca (sorry, I cannot tell the difference) look.
It totally made my bad morning better. And I as I said, there are SQUIRRELS in it!! (I mean COME ON!!! Squirrels!!!). There is an animal for everyone. There is a place for this for everyone. And while we will not get the printed word, we will get a smile out of this. And don’t miss, in March 2020 This Book Is Literally Just Pictures of Snoozy Animals That Will Make You Sleep Better
