THE GOOD THING ABOUT is a concept conceived and developed in the late 1990’s in the UK. Basically the “glass is always half full” not “half empty”. There is always a positive side – no matter what the situation.

There are a series of books printed by Fantail (a division of Penguin) in the UK. The books are written for young children “Humorous, thought-provoking, informative and fun – these are books to delight children and adults alike.”

The books are accompanied by a teacher’s presentation and were part of primary school’s curriculum. There has also been THE GOOD THING ABOUT comic strip in a national UK weekly newspaper, a greeting card collection through Gibson in the USA. Plus numerous promotion and merchandising products.
