Thumbnail image for How to Be Amazed: See the Wonder in Small Things by Lauren Rosenfeld

Wonder is all around us. When we were children, we saw it everywhere we looked. Everything was new, fresh, amazing. We grabbed the closest adult to show them these small miracles we saw in the world, from the brilliant yellow dandelions spouting through the grass, to the shape-shifting of a summer cloud.
