"Thanks" is a non-fiction book with 28 full-color illustrations, created for children aged between 3 and 10 years. The aim of this book is to awaken gratitude in children, inviting them to find something to be thankful for every day among the things that surround them in their daily lives. How to use the book We suggest reading it at bedtime, as a little ritual before sleep, closing the day's activities. Children who can't read without the help of a loved one will add the word "Thanks" to the description of each of the pictures. After a while, even if they can't read yet, they'll be able to "read" the book to themselves. For children who can read on their own, we suggest that, as well as understanding the picture on each page, they should think of other reasons for saying "thank you," with the help of some of the suggested phrases. The aim is to add as many reasons to be grateful as can possibly be imagined. The book opens the door to a broader reflection Despite the simplicity of the texts, each phrase opens the door to a broader reflection, which may be performed in the company of a family member. The ultimate goal is to enrich children's vision, expanding their perception and attitude to everything around them, enabling them to understand how things work in our lives and discover that everything has a beautiful side that deserves to be recognized and valued. Positive psychology and the benefits of gratitude Multiple studies have shown the correlation between gratitude and increased wellbeing. Much recent work has suggested that people who are more grateful have higher levels of wellbeing, are happier and feel more satisfied with their lives. Grateful people sleep better, and this seems to be because they have fewer negative thoughts just before going to sleep. Considering how beneficial gratitude is for people, we believe that the sooner we can introduce this beneficial habit to children the better, thus ensuring that their lives will be happier and less stressful.
The Demon-Haunted World
Author: Carl Sagan
Publisher: Ballantine Books
A prescient warning of a future we now inhabit, where fake news stories and Internet conspiracy theories play to a disaffected American populace “A glorious book . . . A spirited defense of science . . . From the first page to the last, this book is a manifesto for clear thought.”—Los Angeles Times How can we make intelligent decisions about our increasingly technology-driven lives if we don’t understand the difference between the myths of pseudoscience and the testable hypotheses of science? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and distinguished astronomer Carl Sagan argues that scientific thinking is critical not only to the pursuit of truth but to the very well-being of our democratic institutions. Casting a wide net through history and culture, Sagan examines and authoritatively debunks such celebrated fallacies of the past as witchcraft, faith healing, demons, and UFOs. And yet, disturbingly, in today's so-called information age, pseudoscience is burgeoning with stories of alien abduction, channeling past lives, and communal hallucinations commanding growing attention and respect. As Sagan demonstrates with lucid eloquence, the siren song of unreason is not just a cultural wrong turn but a dangerous plunge into darkness that threatens our most basic freedoms. Praise for The Demon-Haunted World “Powerful . . . A stirring defense of informed rationality. . . Rich in surprising information and beautiful writing.”—The Washington Post Book World “Compelling.”—USA Today “A clear vision of what good science means and why it makes a difference. . . . A testimonial to the power of science and a warning of the dangers of unrestrained credulity.”—The Sciences “Passionate.”—San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
