Creating Delight is a mildly subversive, highly practical and entertaining alternative to the gaggle of gratitude promoters who seem a bit too serious about adding joy to your life. While the authors are in absolute agreement with the inspiring experts who tout the importance of gratitude, this book builds on their work by connecting it with humor and play. It broadens the possibilities, offers a lighthearted attitude, and provides dozens of specific ideas for sharing the pleasures of being alive.

Whether you serve students/children, older adults, or your family and friends, use this book as a guide to illustrate concrete ways you can help them find delight.

Delight has connotations of not only happiness, but unexpected pleasure. Find it in this book.
