Description

Celebrate kindness, compassion, self-care, and love in all its forms with the board book edition of the instant New York Times bestseller I Am Love!

“Practical and empowering for young ones learning how to emotionally attend to themselves and others.” —Kirkus Reviews

Love means showing kindness, living with gratitude, and taking care of our minds and bodies. Letting our hearts lead the way can help move us closer to a better world. “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.”

I Am Love asks readers to look inward when they feel afraid, angry, hurt, or sad. When a storm is brewing inside us and the skies grow dark, the transformative power of love lets the light back in. Includes heart-opening yoga poses and a guided meditation.

Also available:
I Am Me

I Am . . . A Box of Goodness!

Editorial Reviews

"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

"The illustrations are clean and colorful against a contrasting background. . . A beautiful tool for teaching love, empathy, and self-care."
