Susan Verde

Johanna Lawshea

Susan Verde is the author of The Museum and You and Me. She is a licensed yoga instructor. Her latest book (with illustrations from award-winning illustrator Peter Reynolds), I Am Yoga (Abrams Appleseed) encourages children to explore the world of yoga and make room in their hearts for the world beyond it. A kid-friendly guide to 17 yoga poses is included. An eagle soaring among the clouds or a star twinkling in the night sky . . . a camel in the desert or a boat sailing across the sea—yoga has the power of transformation. Not only does it strengthen bodies and calm minds, but with a little imagination, it can show us that anything is possible. In a starred review Kirkus Reviews says, “Empowering affirmations and playful illustrations will inspire both children and adults to slow down and strike a pose.”
