The instant New York Times bestseller!
Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds continue their collaboration with the fourth book in their bestselling 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.
"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."
