The fourth board book in the bestselling I Am series by Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds
I put my hands on my heart and listen.
And that is where I find the answer:
I have compassion.
I act with tenderness.
I am love.
Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds continue their collaboration with the fourth book in their wellness series. A celebration of love in all its forms, I Am Love asks readers to look inward when they feel afraid. Love allows us to act with compassion and kindness, to live with gratitude, and to take care of ourselves by practicing self-love.
"The illustrations are clean and colorful against a contrasting background. . . A beautiful tool for teaching love, empathy, and self-care."— School Library Journal
"Emphasizing Verde's common themes of mindfulness and emotional presence, the main character demonstrates expressions of love ranging from keeping their own "mind and body safe and healthy" to careful listening to others. . . Verde provides extensive backmatter, including yoga poses and a heart meditation. These addenda enrich the narrative and provide useful context for the relationship skills outlined in the text. Practical and empowering for young ones learning how to emotionally attend to themselves and others."— Kirkus Review
