It takes big actions to make big changes. Or does it? In Ripple’s Effect, residents of an aquarium learn that sometimes a smile is all it takes to make a world of difference. Awash with charming illustrations, this delightful tale will show children that happiness is a choice they get to make for themselves.

Reviews and Endorsements:

Ripple’s Effect is a sweet and inventive take on thwarting
a bully. Ripple’s good nature and quick wits make this a fun and
helpful read for anyone who’s had to deal with a “Snark”.
—Nancy Coffelt, author/illustrator of
Aunt Ant Leaves Through the Leaves

Ripple’s Effect teaches kids that it’s never too soon to learn
about the power of a smile, and that facing fear with
friendliness could turn a bully into a buddy.
—Cristina Kessler, author of
The Best Beekeeper of Lalibela

Ripple’s Effect proves sometimes a simple
smile can spark a shark to play nice.
—Coleen Paratore, author of BIG

About the Authors:

Shawn Achor spent over a decade at Harvard University studying the principles of happiness before penning the international bestseller, The Happiness Advantage. He is also the founder of Good Think. To teach his happiness principles to younger readers, he collaborated with his sister, Amy Blankson, to write Ripple’s Effect.

Amy Blankson is a positive leadership consultant and among her many achievements, has been named a Point of Light by Presidents Bush and Clinton. As a mother of three, she hopes Ripple’s Effect will inspire young people to make a positive difference in their world.

Illustrator Bio:

Cecilia Rebora belongs to a creative family of painters. She was raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, where she still lives. Shortly after beginning her studies in the arts, Cecilia discovered that what she enjoyed most in life was telling stories with pictures. She studied for three years at the Josep Sierra | Abella School of Fine Arts in Barcelona, and it was there that she truly fell in love with the profession. She has since published around thirty children's books worldwide.
