Live Life Sunny Side Up by Jeremy Ville

This is a brilliantly different book, one to make you smile and brighten your day! Filled with around a hundred Community Service Announcements – or messages to change your day – this collection contains the author’s all time favourites of the 800 or so he has produced so far. These are normally shared by the New York based artist via his newspaper, Jeremyville RAW, but have also been exhibited at art Museums around the world. Here they are collected together to inspire through illustrated messages promoting the artist’s desire to make the world a more positive, brighter and thoughtful place for us all to live in. What a great message for everyone and a lovely book to dip into for inspiration – and a giggle – this is a fantastic picture book for adults to enjoy!

Having said all that, I also think teachers could easily share some of the images to help inspire their pupils, too. There are many of them that are relevant to children as well as adults and their clear message makes them accessible too. They could be used to prompt discussions regarding the message or to inspire pupils to create their own to inspire others about things that may be annoying them, too, A potentially very useful resource in schools!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
