- Unit Price
Discover the power of activism in this companion to New York Times bestsellers I Am Human and I Am Love !
“How do I make a difference? It seems like a tall order for one so small. But beautiful things start with just one.” One seed to start a garden, one note to start a melody, one brick to start breaking down Every movement and moment of change starts with purpose, with intention, with one. With me. With you.
On the first page, the main character asks a beautiful bird, “How do I make a difference?” They doubt their ability to make a difference because they are “so small.” However, when the bird gives them a seed, they realize that “beautiful things start with just One.” They can plant a seed and start a garden! They can also start a journey, paint a masterpiece, compose a melody, and break down walls. All these actions start with “one” a first step, a first stroke of paint, a first musical note, and a first brick.
Here is a powerful call to action for young children, encouraging them to raise their voice, extend a hand, and take that one first step to starting something beautiful and moving toward a better world.
Includes a guided meditation and self-reflection activity.
