"Emphasizing Verde's common themes of mindfulness and emotional presence, the main character demonstrates expressions of love ranging from keeping their own "mind and body safe and healthy" to careful listening to others. . . Verde provides extensive backmatter, including yoga poses and a heart meditation. These addenda enrich the narrative and provide useful context for the relationship skills outlined in the text. Practical and empowering for young ones learning how to emotionally attend to themselves and others."
