"I Am Human", by Susan Verde

Today I will be reading "You and Me" by Susan Verde and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds.

Being human means we are full of possibility. We learn, we dream, we wonder at the world around us. But we also make mistakes and can feel fearful or sad.

A child in a red-striped shirt and blue jeans explores the possibilities open to them as a human being. Beginning with “I was born. A miracle! One of billions but unique!” the text lists activities (“I am always learning”; “I have BIG dreams”). The child explores the difficult sides of being human, such as feelings of fear and sadness. They can “make choices” and “move forward” with “thoughtfulness” (for example, giving flowers to a friend they hurt), learning to live with kindness, compassion, listening, and connection. “I am full of hope. I am human.”
