Author(s): Marie-Agnès Gaudrat; Carme Sole Vendrell
What makes us happy? To fear the unknown? Or to be curious about new experiences? To use up what exists until it is gone? Or to take care of what exists, so that we may always enjoy it? In thirteen brilliantly painted scenes, Gaudrat and Vendrell pose simple, open-ended questions about what it means to be happy. But rather than offering a set of ready-made answers and morals, this book encourages children to think and feel for themselves. And invites families to engage with topics like altruism, curiosity, selfishness, and benevolence, to inspire children to make up their own minds about how best to live, love and care for themselves and others.
