In this world, all critter children learned that happiness did
not happen by accident; it was things that made you feel
good. That kind of thinking was called positive thinking, and
anyone could learn how to do it! Instead of thinking or
talking about how bad things were, positive thinking critters
talked about good things most of the time, and they were
always looking for the good in every situation. These
positive thinkers were really like wizards because they could
see lots of good things that negative, unhappy critters could
not see. They could also find solutions and solve problems
really fast, create great new like putting on a new pair of
glasses; you could see lots of good things that you couldn’t
see before. It worked just like magic!
