Happiness Around the World


The follow-up to Lonely Planet Kids’ Love Around the World, this beautifully illustrated picture book looks at concepts of happiness and calm from across our planet. From sobremesa (unwinding at the table after a big meal) in Spain and dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing) in Italy, to Danish hygge, Indian laughter therapy and sharing a feast with family in the USA, every culture has its own unique take on how to achieve contentedness. Featuring Wazza Pink’s stunning artwork, this book is the ultimate guide to the world of wellbeing.
