What Makes You Grateful?: Voices from Around the World (Paperback)
You just have to leaf through this incredible book!! The artwork alone is so
beautiful!! The individual stories and short quotes are touching and
inspiring. Then there are the inquisitive journal prompts to challenge
you. So this lovely volume could be a gift for a grad (Dad?) or retiree,
or just something incredible for your own bookshelf. What a special
book created by a writer who is really AOK and challenged others to
respond. I am grateful I found this book and that I get to work around
readers and book lovers. Enjoy!!!
What began as a personal pick-me-up quickly became a feel-good phenomenon, tapping into the power of gratitude. In October 2011, Kubitsky began asking, "What makes you grateful?" and invited people to write or draw a glimmer of gladness on a postcard and mail it back to her. Placing blank invitation cards in public places like college cafeterias, post offices, parks, community centers, libraries, and cafes, she attempted to engage the community at large. Since then, she has received thousands of responses from all over the globe. In this beautiful book, Kubitsky shares a selection of submissions, including stunning artwork, heartbreaking stories, and sincere expressions of gratitude. From cupcakes to lightning strikes, this feel-good book gives voice to gratitude and the simple pleasures that make life great. If you like PostSecret, The Book of Awesome, or Chicken Soup for the Soul, start smiling. This book is all three wrapped into one.
