When Esperanza spots a heart-shaped rock, she sees it as a reminder to spread kindness and love in the world. But when the school play doesn’t go the way she’d imagined, will she remember to give it to herself?

Listening with My Heart is a beautifully illustrated book that touches on the universal themes of kindness, empathy and self-compassion. It reminds us of the other golden rule—to treat ourselves with the same kindness that we give to others.

Listening with My Heart includes kid-friendly self-compassion exercises and is a wonderful addition to any home or school library!


“This delightful book gets at the essence of how to help children be more self-compassionate – by teaching them to be a good friend to themselves. With beautiful illustrations, an engaging story, and a few simple self-compassion practices for children, this book is a must for anyone wanting to help children cope with their difficult emotions in a kind, connected and mindful manner.”

-Kristin Neff, Ph.D, author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
