Celebrate World Kindness Day with this beautiful book about gratitude and joy

The Little Book of Joy by Joanne Ruelos Diaz and illustrated by Annelies Draws is all about the tiny acts of kindness we can show towards each other that help make the world a better place to live.

In uncertain times, kindness towards ourselves and each other can make a real difference - and this lovely book helps little ones to find a different way to spread joy every day of the year.

Be inspired by famous people on their birthdays; learn how to spot and find flowers throughout each season; create your own gratitude jar; learn how to make pastries; make a gift for someone you love; discover the pleasure of letter writing; and find joy in a rainy day. Packed with art activities, famous birthdays, inventions, international holidays, facts, and trivia about the world around us, each page offers a mindful prompt to encourage gratitude for things we have, every day.
