A bilingual English-Spanish board book about being part of a family and a group

I Belong / Yo pertenezco

A board book about being part of a family and a group / Un libro sobre formar parte de una familia y un grupo


A sense of belonging is a basic human need. Now in a bilingual English-Spanish edition, this friendly, reassuring board book shows toddlers what it means to belong at home and in a group. “I have a place I always belong. People in my family listen and help me.” Children see that they have safe places where they feel loved and where they talk, play, share—and help others belong too. Warm, realistic illustrations illuminate the text, showing children eating, playing, making music, and working together with family and friends. “Belonging feels so good! I want to help others feel good too.”

A section for adults in both languages offers tips on talking about the book together, along with activities for helping children build a sense of belonging. Access to digital downloads is also provided.
