FRI-YAY! Miss Jill and Square Books Jr. are pleased to welcome Susan Verde for a bonus special storytime takeover in celebration of her her picture book I Am Courage: A Book of Resilience 

Tune in Friday, September 10th at 10:00 am CT on Facebook Live

I move ahead one breath at a time.
I act with bravery.
I am courage.


When we picture someone brave, we might think they’re fearless but real courage comes from feeling scared and facing what challenges us anyway. When our minds tell us “I can’t,” we can look inside ourselves and find the strength to say, “Yes, I CAN!”

From the New York Times bestselling team behind the I Am series comes a triumphant celebration of everyday courage: believing in ourselves, speaking out, trying new things, asking for help, and getting back up no matter how many times we may fall. Grounded in mindfulness and awareness, I Am Courage is an empowering reminder that we can conquer anything.
Inside, you'll also find exercises to inspire confidence.

"A vivid array of vibrant backgrounds evoke the range of moods experienced by the children, who themselves are drawn as distinct individuals with expressive faces. . .For young readers who need help believing in themselves and for those with friends who do the same." 
— Kirkus Reviews
