內容簡介 快樂是什麼？你在尋找快樂嗎？它藏在架上的桃紅色罐子裡嗎？有時候快樂這小玩意會變身，用各種形式存在—它可能化身成寵物、禮物、玩伴…。有時候，它會躲貓貓躲好久，但卻又突然現身。快樂到底是什麼？什麼時候出現啊？你可以透過閱讀瞭解它，試著收集它、保護它、抓住它，但它似乎有自己的意志，並不是你想要就有。這麼說，快樂好像很難找尋，但它其實一直跟著你：有時候是和朋友一起、和貓咪狗狗玩、動手做園藝；欣賞大自然花花草草，一樹一鳥，看書，或是單純的簡單的伸展。原來，不用刻意尋找，快樂其實一直在你身旁。This follow-up to When Sadness Is at Your Door suggests that happiness can always be found by looking within.This helpful picture book is a great introduction to mindfulness and emotional literacy. A spare text and simple illustrations encourage readers to find happiness even if it feels far away. The book gives it a shape, turning this elusive emotion into something real while acknowledging that you can't be happy all the time. The thoughtful text reassures readers that when happiness is hard to find, they can look for it in many places. Sharing something with a friend or reaching out to someone who needs it can lead to happiness. Recognize and treasure it when you experience it, knowing that happiness begins with you. Perfect for kids and for adult readers tackling these feelings themselves!
