The on-trend notion of self-compassion, in book form: an interactive book packed with thoughtful reading, beautiful illustration, and paper goodies throughout to help readers slow down and be kind to themselves, from the experts at Flow.

Slow down, celebrate the flaws, own the good stuff, and focus on learning to love and appreciate yourself. These themes of self-compassion and self-care are hugely popular, and Flow® has a unique and creative take on them. Now, following A Book That Takes Its Time, with 205,000 copies in print, A Book That Loves You offers a message that will resonate in its simplicity: Be sweet to yourself, no matter what kind of day you’re having. (In fact, the challenging days are the days you’ll most want to pick up the book.)

Discover the comforting effects of a daily ritual, like drinking tea. Why it’s okay—and even beautiful—to stumble now and again. Embrace the art of being alone. Release the reins on your schedule. And learn to love yourself with all your imperfections—including your over-productive mind. The book combines Flow’s signature scrapbook-like look and feel, focus on mindfulness, and high production standards. Sprinkled throughout the essays, illustrations, and sayings are paper “goodies,” designed to help readers put what they read into action: A “slow down” sticker puzzle, a pullout “My Own User Manual” map, a DIY flower to assemble and enjoy.
           
It’s a delightful gift for yourself or someone you care about—a book to peruse and engage with, using creativity and intention.
