This is a delightful little book that you can read through in half an hour or less. I am suggesting you don't though. This book needs to be savoured, read slowly and the thoughts in it need to be absorbed. Instead of just reading it, take time to really think about what you're reading and do the little challenges or exercises offered.
I loved what this book had to say, I loved the quotes from famous people. I loved the top ten at the end.
Gratitude is a frame of mind. Our whole type of thinking n

This is a sweet little book with lots of thought provoking quotes, tips, and exercises that emphasize gratitude. The typography and art design of this book are both highly effectual. The minimalist, modern look is almost memorizing as you scroll through the pages. My only suggestion: Split the book up by days. I ended up speeding through this in about 20 minutes, but I think it would be much more powerful to break it up into "Day 1", "Day 2", etc, and have the reader read one section a day and r ...more

Dani DiPirro's "Gratitude" is an attractive little book. It is easy to read and would make a good gift for anyone from pre-teens to adults. Some children may also enjoy it as well. I enjoy these little gift books since they are nice quick reads for before appointments, between classes, etc.

Who doesn't need a little more "Gratitude" in their lives. I recommend this book for readers of all ages and think it would make an excellent gift, especially with the holidays coming. I won my copy from the G

Gratitude is very "en vogue" so you may have heard of a lot of advices.
It's also a way of seeing life that requires constant work on a daily basis. Reminding ourselves of the beauty of small gestures, of the importance of a smile or of a enjoying looking at a vivid blue sky can lift our spirits but only if we are able to stop, breath and appreciate what life is offering you.

I've liked the quotes and the thoughts proposed by the author as well as the advices at the end of the book.
It's a perfec

Note: I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, I thought this book was sweet. It would make a beautiful addition to any gift.
It was very easy to read, had a nice message, and a beautiful cover.

The whole downside to this ARC, and has no real reflection of the book itself, is the fact that it was a digital copy so I was not able to see any of the page formatting or page visuals (if any) which for some books like this one, can really transform it into

Overall: 4/5
Cover: 5/5 (LOVE IT!)
Writing: 4/5

Love the cover! It's definitely the type of covers that catch my eye when I enter a bookstore. The writing is pretty nice, but I feel like I expected something more. It's nice, but it can be better. And I hoped the illustrations could be more....special.
But overall it's suitable for a present. 4 stars out of 5.

I received an advance reader's copy from NetGalley.

I will fully admit that the bright and cheery cover is what first drew me in, and the simple but effective text "Gratitude". This was a wonderful quick read but I also find it to be a great resource to assist in putting in the work to make positive changes. It is not only a very attractive book, it is an instant mood lifter. It's filled with great quotes and activities you can do to work on your perspective and attitude.

Great little book on the importance of engendering an attitude of gratitude. Read through before bed last night and it was soothing and good to redirect my thoughts to a place of goodness, joy,thankfulness and peace.

I got this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. And thanks to Watkins Publishing.

Once published, this book will make a great little gift.
