What is the key to happiness? How is happiness measured? The Kingdom of Happiness introduces students to Bhutan, a tiny mountain kingdom, where happiness is the priority. Bhutan's first happiness survey was conducted in 2007 and inspired other countries throughout the world to consider the state of contentment among their citizens. Students will be asked to contemplate the effect of the modern world on the happiness of the Bhutanese citizens. The book can also be used to teach students how to identify cause-and-effect relationships as well as to identify adjectives. The book and lesson are also available for levels T and W.
