Live events and beautiful children's books about choosing happiness, by Tessa Cobb

The Happy Book Lady at NORTH London Collegiate School!


Tessa was super excited to share The Art Of Happiness with students at NCLS - kicking-off wellbeing week with a bang!

Pupils up to and including year 4 enjoyed immersive storytelling with 'Geoffrey FInds a Bike'. This happy giraffe and his biking buddies show us how to choose happiness, even when everything goes wrong.


Years 5 and 6 discovered the secrets to success with 'The Girl Who Walked to the Moon.' Who knew that realising your dreams was about trying, and failing, and trying, and failing again?!
