Summary

A heartfelt celebration of the little things that make life beautiful—and bring happiness even in hard times.   Watching the sunrise. Making a sandcastle. Sending a care package. Eating cake for breakfast. Each of these activities is small, yet can bring us big happiness.   Open Eat Cake for Breakfast to find one hundred different ways to incorporate joy into your life, all prompted by author and artist Viola Sutanto's mission to affirm humanity during her daughter’s life-threatening medical treatment. Inspired by the 100 Day Project, Sutanto embarked on a journey to uplift her family and her community with dozens of creative suggestions for happiness and delicately colorful illustrations. This delightful book reminds us that no matter how tough life gets, happiness can be found in even the smallest acts of intentional joy. Eat Cake for Breakfast is a tribute to the medical team at the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, CA, where Viola's daughter was treated for bone marrow failure. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to support their incredible work.
Available since: 08/17/2021.

    From Harvard classrooms to your grandma's kitchen table—everybody is getting on the look on the brightside bandwagon. If you need to know, there's a ton of medical research to back it up, but people who appreciate where their bread is buttered and how sweet the jam on their toast is—well they're healthier, they live longer, they're usually more successful—although they may not define success as having the most marbles, and for sure other people want to spend more time around them. Addie Johnson calls Life Is Sweet her scrapbook, in which she’s gathered stories that struck her—things that made her happy in the seeing or experience and in the remembering. And bits she’s read. And quotes. People, stories, kids and animals, stuff/no stuff (aka all or nothing), achievements achieved and unpleasant tasks done, laughing (snickering, giggling, guffawing, wetting your pants) health or progress toward it-—all are fodder for happiness. Life is sweet and creamy—yes your life and yours and yours and yours--if you just look at what's in front of your face.
