Description - How to be a Child by Christine Langtree

"How to Be a Child" is a gentle reminder for all of us to pause and look anew at the world through the eyes of a child. To remember what it felt like to laugh till your sides ached. To run around barefoot. To see, and call things as they really are. To show off just for the sake of doing so. With pictures from photographer Michael Coyne, "How to Be a Child" is a beautiful - and amusing - view of the wisdom of children.
