The little book of wonder

Bernadette Russell (2018)

 

When was the last time you felt 'wonder'? The feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful, remarkable, or unfamiliar is one that, as children, we experienced often. But as adults we have grown tired and cynical and spend more time looking down at our phones than looking up at the sky. We no longer experience the power of awe nor its proven benefits. 'The Little Book of Wonder' encourages you to be creative, feel curious and seek wonder in the world around us. [Note: Includes blank sections to be filled in by the reader]
