I Am Love: A Book of Compassion

"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."

Susan Verde's "I am:" range is a collection we had to include in the Little Big Library, "I Am Love" being no exception.

"I Am Love" is a celebration of love in all its forms, to ourselves and others, to the Earth and to its varied inhabitants. It teaches us that we are worthy of love and that we are all capable of adding light to the World when we listen to our hearts and act from a place of kindness. 

We adore "I Am Love" because it feels a particularly pertinent representation of life on Earth at the moment. There is a wave of international, political change; a storm of generational revolt against oppression and discrimination. With a long way to go and having already come so far, political leaders, governments and citizens alike have coordinated a campaign of compassion, thinking, acting and reforming from a place of love.

"I Am Love" is a single example of how we as parents can continue to shape this global movement and change the world, one Little Big lover at a time.

Here's what was said about I Am Love: A Book of Compassion by Susan Verde...

Name: Haize

Age: 6 years old

Story Rating: 5/5

Picture Rating: 5/5

Haize: "This one is my favourite Mum, you know that."

Susan Verde lives in New York City where she trained as a teacher before funnelling her passions into yoga-training. This is absolutely reflected in her writing style, with affirmation style text spoken in first person, a subtle and very clever way to plant a healthy voice of calm in our Little Bigs as they internalise the emotive concepts. Many of Susan's books including the "I Am" collection are in collaboration with artist Peter H Reynolds. Our favourite thing about his style is the balance between colourful, eye catching illustrations and gender-neutral, physical inclusivity.

Fun fact: Susan Verde thinks of I Am Love as her love letter to the world. If you were going to write a love letter to the world, where would you start?
