You Are Sacred is the first book in the All That You Are series. Through lyrical text and colourful watercolour illustrations, the All That You Are series uses the teachings of the Anishinaabe Medicine Wheel to remind children of their connection to the world around them. Each book in the series focuses on one quadrant of the Medicine Wheel that represents one kind of wellness—Spiritual, Physical, Emotional, and Mental. A diagram and description of the Medicine Wheel are included at the back of each book. Also included are Anishinaabe Connections, which share more about Anishinaabe art, culture, and traditions explored in the text and illustrations. Books in the All That You Are series are best suited for children ages 3 to 6 and make wonderful read-alouds in classrooms and homes.
What we love about this book is how beautifully it pairs with the Strong Nations Yoga Cards and how poses can be woven in to each page. Eagle Pose, Butterfly, Tree, Mountain, and Moon are just a few asanas that can be shared alongside this heart-cented story.
