In a compact handbook, Gerry offers 100 ideas for ways that readers might explore and express gratitude. The suggestions range from specific actions ("Keep a gratitude journal" and "Marvel at a rainbow") to those more philosophical in nature ("Get to know your unique point of view"). For many of the items, Gerry provides additional context and informative sidebars. For "catch (and release) fireflies," she describes the chemical process that makes fireflies glow. Elsewhere, Gerry profiles people who have put many of the suggestions into practice. Bright photographs of kids and animals enliven the presentation while suggesting that there is wonder to be found in everyday experiences. Ages 8–12. (Mar.)
