Rabbit tracks in the snow, babies burping, cherry tomatoes...these three items represent just 0.02% of the happiness contained in this book! A list of things to be happy about is a simple premise, and this book delivers and then some: it's an obsessive, wide-ranging, idiosyncratic, and altogether enchanting catalog of the various little things that make us smile and jump for joy, from thoughts to people to places to times of day. For the 25th anniversary, author Barbara Kipfer has revised her original list, adding new material to replace between 1,500 and 2,000 entries. About 125 illustrations are peppered throughout.
