When you or a friend are feeling hurt, afraid, sad or angry, what do you do?

Ask yourself, “What can I do to help let the light back in?”

“I put my hands on my heart and listen. And that is where I find the answer.”

Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds collaborate with this fourth book in their popular mindfulness series. It’s a beautiful celebration of love in all its forms.

Illustrations of children offering support and empathy in many different scenarios provide us with tools on how to be present, comforting and compassionate to each other.

It’s the book we all need right now.

There are so many ways to love each other.

Here are some of the powerful examples demonstrated in this heart opening book:

Love is gratitude, taking care of me, creative, understanding; love is effort, remembering, tiny gestures and connection.

“I am love. You are love. We are love.”

I needed to hear these affirmations.

At the end of the book, the heart meditation and instructions for heart opening yoga postures for kids, bring body, mind and spirit to the conversation on love.

Listening to our hearts and choosing love adds light to the world. Let’s light up the world together!

Helps with: listening to the heart, heart opening yoga poses, heart meditation, social/emotional awareness, interpersonal relationships, feeling loved, gratitude, gentleness, friendship, self-care, nurturing compassion, kindness, and empathy, and mindfulness.
