Joy BookReview written by Toddle About VIP Club member, Johannah Hancox. Joy is a beautifully illustrated and written book about the meaning of Joy. The 'whooossshh' you feel when you feel Joy and the sadness felt when Joy is lost. Fern's Nanna has lost her Joy and Fern is on a mission to return Joy to her Nanna's life. Fern sets off with her catching bag in search for Joy of which she finds in lots of different places, the park, the pond, its everywhere. Fern soon discovers that she is unable to catch Joy to bring to her Nanna, upon telling her Nanna her tales of Joy that she came discovered Nanna's Joy is instantly returned and her smile renewed. The story ends with the two of them having a picnic in the park with Fern's catching bag full of joy, mainly Nanna's delicious cakes. This book takes you on an emotional journey, it explores sadness and teaches children empathy and the importance of their relationships with grandparents. Joy is beautifully illustrated, bright and colourful pictures which represent Joy and dark illustrations to represent sadness.  A fantastic read and one of the most beautifully illustrated children's books we have had the pleasure of reading.
