Should, Could, and Would are three little gnomes who live in a house on a rock. But they aren’t happy gnomes because they fight a lot. Together they set out on a hike to find the Knowing Gnome. Will he be able to help them find the happiness they seek?

Should, Could, and Would tackles the tough issue of how to get along well with others. This is a delightfully simple story that shows very young children how to change bad feelings into good feelings. The colorful, detailed illustrations contribute to pre-schoolers’ understanding of the concept of a positive attitude.

As a special added bonus, in the back of the book there’s a coupon code which can be redeemed at the publisher’s website for a free download of the audio book.
