Today is officially publication day of The Happiest Kids in the World in the United Kingdom and Ireland! The English edition is also now available in Australia and New Zealand, the Netherlands, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Lebanon!
So far, we’ve garnered a bit of attention with our friends from across the pond and a couple of nice reader reviews on Goodreads.com (please add more if our words resonate with you). Here’s what some people have to say about our book:
“Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!” Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2, Breakfast Show
“Clear and concise, with plenty of anecdotes from family life to illustrate the argument, this is one of the most convincing parenting books to come across my desk in the last year.”
Sian Griffiths, education editor of The Sunday Times
“An eye-opening and badly needed dose of perspective. In my next life, I want to be Dutch.”
Pamela Druckerman, author of French Children Don’t Throw Food
“A fascinating book – one I wish I had read sooner! In fact, the more I read the more I became tempted to move our entire family to the Netherlands…”
Sarah Turner author of The Unmumsy Mum
A major serial piece ran in The Telegraph Weekend: They raise the world’s happiest children – so is it time you went Dutch? And there was a glowing review in The Sunday Times.
