"I felt kind of cranky. I felt kind of sad. I can't tell you why, but I even felt mad." For every child who sometimes feels out of sorts and doesn't know why, Where'd My Giggle Go? helps normalize and dissipate negative emotions in a delightful way.
A perfect read-aloud, Where'd My Giggle Go? provides:
- A natural way for you to talk with your kids about how we all get sad sometimes
- A reminder that we can help others find their happiness
With colorful illustrations from Sarah Jennings, this book is:
- Great for ages 4-8
- Brilliant for classroom discussions about processing feelings and emotions and a resource to help parents discuss being sad, grumpy, anxious, or unhappy
Where'd My Giggle Go? follows a boy who looks all over--from the circus to the bakery to his own pocket--for his giggle. After all, "No-giggle's no fun. No fun, no sirree. No-giggle is not the best way to be." Then he realizes that bringing happiness to others is the best way to find it himself. As he offers smiles and hugs, helps his mom wash the dishes, plays with a friend, and gives the dog a good tickle, he feels something deep, deep within start to wiggle. And before you know it, the boy starts to giggle!
Lucado's charming but powerful message reminds each of us that getting over the grumpies is just a giggle away.

This amazing book is for every child ( and adult ) who wakes up out of sorts and can't put their finger on why. They experience a series of negative emotions and they haven't even gotten out of bed yet. Oh my!
This book features a little guy who has lost his giggle. He spends his day trying to figure out where in the world it has gone. He goes to the circus and asks a clown what to do but receives no solution. He asks his grandpop, the local baker and even searches inside his own pocket but it is nowhere to be found. Whatever shall he do to get his giggle back?
" No-giggle's no fun, no siree.
No-giggle is not the best way to be.
I made a decision that was really quite simple.
What popped in my head
was a cure for no-giggle."
"Where'd My Giggle Go?" is a magical, natural way to converse with your kids about their negative feelings and how to deal with them. It encourages kids to reach out to others and bring them happiness and in so doing those negative feelings will dissipate and joy will fill their soul. The little boy helps others by giving them smiles, hugs, and spreading goodwill to family and even strangers wherever he can. This book inspires and offers hope for those feeling down in the dumps. I love it and highly recommend it.
