Summary

Summary

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.
Caramel gelato.
Scoring super-high on a Scrabble turn.
Babies burping.
Summer storms.
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.
