I am human

I am a work in progress

Striving to be the best version of ME

From the picture book dream team behind I Am Yoga and I Am Peace comes the third book in their wellness series: I Am Human. A hopeful meditation on all the great (and challenging) parts of being human, I Am Human shows that it's okay to make mistakes while also emphasizing the power of good choices by offering a kind word or smile or by saying "I'm sorry." 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.

Review quote

"The third in a gentle, motivational series, following I Am Yoga and I Am Peace, encourages readers to practice compassion and kindness. The illustrations feature many diverse child characters, while Verde's straightforward "I" statements invite self-reflection." -- - Publishers Weekly "This community-minded book is a hopeful meditation on the amazing and challenging aspects of being human. The simple, compassionate message is supplemented by colorful illustrations that help kids understand the abstract-but incredibly important-concept of empathy." -- Curbed "This is a warm, empathetic book that deserves a place on every child's bookshelf and in every school. Moving and wise." -- Carousel
