Listening With My Heart: A Story of Kindness and Self-Compassion

Written by Gabi Garcia and Illustrated by YingHui Tan

We talk to kids a lot about how to be friends to others. Not much about how to be friends to themselves. Yet, positive self-talk and self-acceptance help build emotional resilience, happiness and well-being. Along with Esperanza, children can learn the importance of being a friend to themselves! Listening With My Heart also touches on the universal themes of friendship, empathy and kindness. Includes mindfulness and self-compassion activities.
