Read "Something Happy" to your child. com User, July 2, 2000. If you would like to foster compassion and empathy between siblings, this book is a must have for bedtime reading! I have read this book to my son almost every evening and he just loves the story. It is endearing to see normal fears presented by the charming little sister bunny and to have those fears put to rest by her caring older brother.

In this endearing bedtime story, Willa's big brother helps her get to sleep by reminding her about all of the happy things around her. Willa is afraid of bad dreams. "Think of something happy," suggests her big brother, Willoughby. But Willa needs his help. So together they think of all the happy things that await her in the morning - cozy slippers to warm her little feet, a yummy breakfast, and the morning itself, which loves to gently nudge her awake. But for Willa, the happiest thing of all is knowing that Willoughby will be there in the morning, too, just like always. This reassuring bedtime book will quickly become a cherished addition to family libraries - favorite for grown-ups and little ones to share for years to come.

I am such a fan of some of this illustrator's other works, but this one was just very... middle of the road, perhaps even below average. The illustrations are fine, well done, etc, but nothing that particularly captured my toddler's attention.

Also... as a reader, I was already kind of sick of it by the end of the first read and it's one of the few that I actually think I might regret buying. Though the story is supposed to be touching, it's ultimately just so-so.

This would have been an "meh" if I had borrowed it, and having paid money for it I'm actually a little disappointed!

This was my favorite book as a child, and I needed another copy for a college illustration assignment. This is one of the best books for children. It's just a sweet story about a little sister and her big brother telling her all the happy reasons to go to sleep, and not to be afraid. I would recommend this book to anybody and everybody. I love it, and I believe everyone who reads it will love it too!

Willa bunny is having a hard time going to sleep and her big brother Willoughby helps her. It's a short story of happy things to think about while going to sleep. Both my 2 and 4 year old kids enjoy this (actually we'd first borrowed it from the library and they liked it so much I bought one for us and one as a gift).
I find the "said Willa" "said Willoughby" parts get a bit repetitive, so I just use separate voices for them and I don't have to say that all the time.
Very sweet, friendly book showing siblings loving and helping eachother. The mom peeks in at the end, otherwise it is just the two.

A very sweet book. If you like Willa and Willoughby from "Tell me what it's like to be big" this book is just as cute-maybe cuter. My tip for reading to my toddler who often asks for books over and over again- I skip the "…said Willa" and "…said Willoughby" when I read it. Makes it go much faster. However, it is an adorable story and the brother and sister relationship is just perfect.

This story is adorable and my daughter loves it, just as her brother and older sister did.

I thought the book would be better because of all the great reviews but I really wasn't that impressed.
Read this book to my sons when they were little - bought this for my great nieces - sweet book -
