On 9/11 the people of Gander Newfoundland put their lives on hold and opened up their homes to help 6,000 stranded airline passengers when the U.S. airspace was shut down. 

They affirmed the basic goodness of man at a time when it was easy to doubt such humanity still existed.

These simple words and beautiful illustrations capture perfectly what it is to be a cat lover. Joys so insignificant and enormous at the exact same time. "When you love a cat, you are chosen, over and over again, each day, for a lifetime." Guh. I'm not crying! You are!!!

My new go-to graduation gift recommendation! With sincerity and honesty, Reynolds tells readers that the journey to personal achievement and success is not easy, fixed, or clear and that even passion and perseverance can't cure insecurity. But his refrain, his offering his encouragement is: JUMP ANYWAY. 

Just the right amount of corny and wise, Reynolds' message resonates with those moving on to a new chapter in their lives.
