Susan Verde will be signing I am Human, I am Peace, and I am Yoga.
I Am Human provide a hopeful meditation on all the great (and challenging) parts of being human. At its heart, this picture book is a celebration of empathy and compassion that lifts up the flawed fullness of humanity and encourages children to see themselves as part of one big imperfect family—millions strong.
I Am Peace will help readers of all ages feel grounded and restored, featuring an author’s note about the importance of mindfulness and a guided meditation for children.
I Am Yoga encourages children to explore the world of Yoga and make room in their hearts for the world beyond it in this book about creativity and the power of self-expression.
"Verde brings it all together in the end with the connectedness of humans to each other. The clear and concise text is well-matched by Reynolds’ familiar illustrations in which viewers follow an unnamed boy of color (born on page one) on his human journey . . . An age-appropriate and hopeful look at what it means to be a connected human on this planet." — (School Library Journal)
