I AM ONE by Susan Verde, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
September 19, 2020
The wonderful and creative Susan Verde and Peter H. Reynolds, who have brought us such books as The Museum, I Am Yoga, and I Am Peace, among others, have collaborated on another inspiring book — and I think this may be their best yet!
In the wake of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, many people have been inspired to take action, but some, especially children, may be thinking, “I’m just one person. What can one person do?”
This book, about the simple actions one person can take that can build into great change, can help answer that question for us all.
Through Susan’s simple and inspiring text, and Peter’s heartfelt and down-to-earth art, we see just what one person can do — that “beautiful things begin with just One, and that “One by One, we can make a difference.”
This is a lovely, timely book. I highly recommend it. You can find it at your local independent bookstore, your library, or you could order an autographed copy from Peter’s bookstore, Blue Bunny Books & Toys.
