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.
