A beautifully illustrated celebration of the wisdom of trees and what they can teach us about everyday life, from basking in the sun to weathering the storm.
This sweet and informative book brings together fifty-nine universal life lessons taken from the infinite wisdom of trees. As you learn about dozens of trees, from the Acai palm to the Yoshino cherry, you’ll find that their means of survival are not so different from ours. The juniper tree proves that it’s possible to flourish anywhere as long as we put down strong roots. A mountain hemlock finds strength basking in the sun while a black walnut’s sturdiness comes from its thick, steely core. The hawthorn demonstrates resilience as it adapts to strong winds and storms by finding balance in its roots.
Trees have many more lessons to offer, from letting go of the past, to branching out, to resisting the urge to overstretch ourselves. With detailed illustrations and advice for lifelong happiness, How to Be More Tree is an essential companion for all those moments when we’re having trouble seeing the forest for the trees.SEE LESS

The sequel to the bestsellingMiracle of Mindfulness. A “friend rather than a book,” and a true spiritual classic with wisdom for any situation.
One of Thich Nhat Hanh’s most beloved books, The Sun My Heart contains the journey, on the path of everyday practice, from mindfulness to insight. Using the objects and events of everyday life in his hermitage in Plum Village—the gradual settling of the pulp in a glass of apple juice or the wind blowing into the room and scattering papers about—Thich Nhat Hanh draws from Buddhist psychology, epistemology, and the world of contemporary literature and science to guide the reader along the path of clarity and understanding.
A companion guide for meditators, The Sun My Heart contains many of Thich Nhat Hanh’s core teachings, and encourages readers to use their practice to discover their own insights. As he writes: “Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon to be preserved in a museum.”
Available in this stunning hardcover commemorative edition for the first time and with a new foreword from the convener of the 2015 Paris Climate talks, Christiana Figueres, this is the perfect introduction to Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings, for yourself or for your loved ones.
A diverse group of animals comes together to celebrate one very important idea: no matter our differences, we are all equal.
We are all equal, let’s shout it out loud. We share hopes and dreams, we’re equal and proud.
These animals may all be different from one another, but they know that doesn’t matter. They have different lifestyles, different places of origin, different abilities, different types of families, and more. But big or small, weak or strong, native or new to their land, these animals are all equal, with no one better, more important, or more worthy than the others.
With vivid, vibrant art and a resounding message of tolerance conveyed with a sweet and playful rhyme, this book is a celebration of the many different ways to be, all of which are good, welcome, and equal.SEE LESS

New York Timesbestselling author Jen Sincero gets to the core of transformation: habits–breaking, making, understanding, and sticking with them like you’ve never stuck before.
Badass Habits is a eureka-sparking, easy-to-digest look at how our habits make us who we are, from the measly moments that happen in private to the resolutions we loudly broadcast (and, erm, often don’t keep) on social media. Habit busting and building goes way beyond becoming a dedicated flosser or never showing up late again–our habits reveal our unmet desires, the gaps in our boundaries, our level of self-awareness, and our unconscious beliefs and fears. Badass Habits features Jen’s trademark hilarious voice and offers a much-needed fresh take on the conventional wisdom and science that shape the optimism (or pessimism?) around the age-old topic of habits. The book includes enlightening interviews with people who’ve successfully strengthened their discipline backbones, new perspective on how to train our brains to become our best selves, and offers a simple, 21 day, step-by-step guide for ditching habits that don’t serve us and developing the habits we deem most important. Habits shouldn’t be impossible to reset–and with healthy boundaries, knowledge of–and permission to go after–our desires, and an easy to implement plan of action, we can make any new goal a joyful habit.SEE LESS
