Harper Collins April 2011

Think of something really special and then find two words that added together create that specialness. This book is a collection of life's equations. What are all the good things made of? "Yes plus no equals maybe." "Smile plus ocean wave equals beach." What two words would make a sincere apology? What would explain "being polite?" There's a sensitivity here coupled with a celebration of life. There's a difference between what it takes to create learning versus what it takes to create mastering. There are so many things to think about and so many things to talk about after you read them. What does make a family? This is a simply illustrated, thoughtful, celebratory book that feels like someone running her fingers over the strings of a harp. It's a beautiful song with a bit of a quiver and a wonderful touching on the vibrations that live deep inside us all.
