Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds collaborate in this bestselling series, a New York Best Seller.
A celebration of love and connection for young readers.
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.
Love allows us to act with compassion and kindness, to live with gratitude, and to take care of ourselves by practicing self-love.
A celebration of love in all its forms, I Am Love asks readers to look inward when they feel afraid.
I Am Courage (A Book of Resilience)
Encourage kids to find their inner strength with this companion to the New York Times bestsellers I Am Human and I Am Love!
I move ahead one breath at a time.
I act with bravery.
I am courage.
When we picture someone brave, we might think they’re fearless but real courage comes from feeling scared and facing what challenges us anyway. When our minds tell us “I can’t,” we can look inside ourselves and find the strength to say, “Yes, I CAN!”
I Am Me (A book of authenticity)
A bighearted celebration of individuality, of being comfortable in our own skin, respecting others for who they are, living authentically, and loving ourselves. For anyone who's ever felt like too much or not enough, I Am Me is an affirming reminder that difference is what makes life beautiful--and that each of us matters, just as we are.
Sometimes I stand out in a crowd.
Sometimes I am not seen at all, and I feel alone.
I start to ask myself, why can't I blend in? Fit the mold?
But when I stop and look, I see nothing in this world is exactly the same.
Sometimes we hide who we really are to conform to the way we think we are supposed to be in the world. Sometimes we compare ourselves to others and feel we don't fit in.
But when we realize we are something to be celebrated, and we proudly live out loud as our true selves, we can make our unique mark on the world--and share our joy!
