Foreword - December 20, 2021


The Joyful Book by by Todd Parr celebrates many of the things that allow us to experience and share joy. Among those experiences are celebrating holidays, observing traditions, baking, giving, gathering, and singing. Parr’s trademark bold illustrations and color palette capture the celebratory energy of the book, which highlights joys simple (hugging) and elaborate (decorating for the holidays).
