Longing to find the answers to aging well? Look 'em up! This heartwarming little “dictionary” offers more than 100 words that are “defined” by quotations from Theodore Roosevelt, Audrey Hepburn, Maurice Chevalier, Gertrude Stein, Bob Dylan, Margaret Mead, and other luminaries of a certain age. And scattered throughout are charming photographs of adorable animals: A meerkat grins at the camera, a bear balances a fish on his nose, a seal roars with laughter, a chimpanzee plugs his ears with his fingers while his friend chatters on.
