Everyone MUST have this book!

This book was given to me by my boyfriend who said that this book had my name written all over it. As a teacher, I am surrounded by children and for that reason, among many others, I have chosen to retain a childlike personality as an adult. The book, Balance, makes me laugh each time I thumb through it, and I've read it through probably a hundred times already. Things from "how to make a blanket fort" to "how to tickle" (Figure 1 - Wait for maximum vulnerability. Figure 2 - Go in for the kill. Figure 3 - Scram.) are retold with such a flair for the English language, in addition to the wonderfully animated figure drawings, that people from 5 to 105 have to smile. It recaptures so much of what gets lost as we grow older, and so much of what so many people want to rediscover in themselves. There is a kid in all of us, a childlike anticipation for FUN, and this book helps those who think they've lost that kid, find that innocence (or mischieveousness). It is a wonderful gift for nearly anyone, and makes an even better gift for yourself. It helps you remember the wonderful things from youth - adventures, pleasures and simple things like flying kites. It is a precious treasure of smiles for any grown-up kid. It is one of my most cherished possessions. I hope you like it, as well.

Great Gift Book!

This is a great little book that will make you smile, with smart simple instructions to the "simple pleasures." My favorate is How to sleep in, illistrating how to "Beat innocent clock into submission." If you know anyone in your life who needs to de-stress or just laugh, this book is perfect! It is a regular on my coffee table.
