From feel of fresh sheets to the joy of daydreaming, this book reminds us how much happiness can be found in the smallest things. The writing is tender and uplifting with touches of humour. It’s a balm for the soul in our increasingly screen-based, disconnected world. There are beautiful illustrations dotted throughout. 

The 100 simple pleasures include: 

Climbing a hill

The smell of autumn leaves

Fresh sheets

The sun on your back

People watching

Holding hands

Planting a seed

The first coffee of the day

Writing a Letter.
