14,000 Things to Be Happy About.: Newly Revised and Updated
Something to be happy about: This mesmerizing bestseller is revised and updated. Originally published 25 years ago (happy anniversary!) from a list that Barbara Ann Kipfer started making as a child, it’s the book that marries obsession with happiness. And it now has 4,000 fresh and more current reasons to be happy:
Rabbit tracks in the snow.
Kiteboarding and kitesurfing.
Scoring super-high on a Scrabble turn.
White cupcakes with multicolored sprinkles.
Big red barns.
20 minutes all to yourself.
No opinions, no explanations, no asides, no footnotes, editorializing, or proselytizing. Just the simple premise of a list of things that make us smile. With its chunky shape, striking black-and-white cover, and 100 whimsical illustrations by Pierre Le-Tan, the new 14,000 Things is an irresistible catalog of good thoughts completely updated to reflect today’s world—and an uplifting gift for people of all moods and all ages.

You’ve Got Quirks
Some kids hurt because they feel like “The Weird One,” but we all have quirks that make us different! Quirks can be big or small, from how we look, speak, and live life, to medical conditions.
You’ve Got Quirks tells the true stories of people who were “different” as children. Other kids and some adults didn’t understand them and teased them.
At the time, our quirky heroes felt embarrassed and powerless, but living with quirks taught them valuable lessons they now share with you.
