Award-Winning Children's book — Listening With My Heart

Listening With My Heart: A story of kindness and self-compassion
Written by Gabi Garcia; Illustrated by Ying-Hui Tan

When Esperanza finds a heart-shaped rock, she sees it as a reminder to spread kindness and love in the world. But when the school play doesn’t go the way she’d imagined, will she remember to give it to herself?

In today’s hyper-competitive world, kids often internalize the message that their worth is attached to their accomplishments and that messing up is something to be ashamed of, rather than a normal part of life, which can lead to critical self-talk. Listening with My Heart reminds us of the other golden rule—to treat ourselves with the same kindness we give to others.
