About the Author
An Swerts is a pharmacist-turned-journalist. In addition to being a professional journalist, writing children's books has become her great passion. Jenny Bakker graduated with a major in illustrative design from the Fine Arts Academy. Having worked as a freelance graphic designer for many years, she decided to focus all her energy on her one true passion: illustrating children's books.
"Many young children need help, reassurance and a bit of guidance so they aren't fearful and apprehensive. "You Make Me Happy" is a tender story about how to learn to open up and tell friends the truth. Jenny Bakker's gently flowing illustrations are lovely, too." -- KIDS' HOME LIBRARY (nationally syndicated column by Lee Littlewood) "Bakker creates dreamy, windswept backdrops for this story of a girl who confides in her grandmother about her first crush...Readers with romantic butterflies of their own may be emboldened by the girl's decision to announce her affection to the boy--with a message that reiterates the book's title." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "The message is a universal one with broad appeal...The gorgeous artwork and tender storyline provide a good backdrop...to talk to children about the angst of young love." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
