*Review* I Will Always be Happy to See You by Ellen Delange

Genre: Children's Illustrated
Published: May 10, 2016
Pages: 32


A sweet story about a little dog that knows he will always be welcomed home with open arms, no matter what trouble he may get into.

This is a great book to help your children — if they are starting daycare, school, or even university — to reassure them that, no matter what happens, you will always be happy to see them.


I received a copy of this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I like the message in this story, that even when a person does things to make us less than happy, we are still going to be happy to see them, which I kind of interpreted as we'll always love them, no matter what. 

I read this story to my five year old and she said it was bad (this is the first time that's ever happened). She didn't like it when it looked like the girl was going to fall down. She did like the part where the neighbors flowers were picked though. (I believe she thought the story was bad because so many of the actions described were "naughty" things, and not that the book itself was actually bad though.)

4.5 out of 5 stars. - Katie
