Description

Encourage kids to practice self-love every day with Who I Am, an uplifting picture book collection of positive affirmations and companion to Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds’s New York Times bestselling I Am series.

When the unkind voice gets loud and I feel down, I can tell myself:
I am enough. In this world, I matter.

We all have rough days: tough times when we feel down and an unkind voice in our mind can make us feel disappointed in ourselves. But we can talk back to that unkind voice; we can find the voice that will lift us up instead. We can tell ourselves words that are positive, supportive, and true.

A celebration of self-love and owning all the things that make us special, Who I Am: Words I Tell Myself is a heartfelt collection of positive affirmations, helping us to affirm that we are human, we are enough, and we are deserving of all kinds of love—especially our own.
Also available:
