The Happiest Preschool by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. and Kelly Perez is a guidebook on a new perspective on engaging preschool pupils in learning. This approach is based on understanding why children always behave the way they do and addressing solely this reason using a positive and care-giving motive.

The book proves to be an educative guide for all teachers handling preschool and kindergarten children, as well as parents, to help the pupils learn in a way that they would learn naturally without having to be forced through those non-age-appropriate rules and tactics. The book is divided into 8 chapters, exposing and addressing many concepts of child psychology as well as the practical application of tactics in handling children under each concept. First, the book discusses "Social-Emotional Learning: The Smart Love Way. Under this concept, the book explains ways to handle the seemingly complicated feelings of children, such as anger, upset, fear, missing loved ones, and sadness.

I concur with the concept that educators should encourage children to express all their emotions openly. The book provides tangible examples of how teachers can address emotions arising in preschool students. In instances where teachers may struggle to comprehend certain emotions, they seek guidance from Director Perez or Dr. Pieper. For instance, if a child unexpectedly experiences sadness and expresses it by hitting a classmate, I would approach and communicate with the student with care, aiming to assist them in overcoming the distress underlying their unhappiness. This is opposed to giving punishment or tagging the student badly, as seen in the traditional way of handling pupils. This book would help teachers, parents, and guardians to distinguish between self-care motives and personal motives when cautioning children when they do something out of childishness. Hence, I recommend the book to all preschool and kindergarten teachers. The book advises that teachers should correct children with positive and self-care motives and should not make a child look bad to other children. I agree and believe in the workability and authenticity of all the tactics given to counter all forms of child antisocial behavior. I felt lucky to have chosen this book, and I cannot love it less.

All in all, the book is professionally edited and written with the utmost simplicity and clarity. There is nothing for me to point out as a flaw in this book. All concepts taught are explained with live scenarios about the best tactics a teacher or staff member has used that bring a healthy result at the end. Hence, I'll be rating the book 5 out of 5 stars.
