When we develop self-compassion, we develop compassion for others as a result.

In her new children’s book, “I'm the Missing Piece” (published by Trafford Publishing), Michele Mariscal tells a colorful story of compassion and self-acceptance.

“This book is about the journey of Green Piece, a puzzle piece who looks around him and wants to look like other puzzle pieces that he sees,” summarizes Mariscal. “In his fall off of the table, he meets new characters, and he learns more about the world around him.”

The book follows the experience of Green Piece as he embarks on a fun and educational adventure. The characters he meets along the way – Cecil Celery Stick, Great Thought and Dust Bunny – show Green Piece that everyone fits in somewhere.

“In the era of very public stories of bullying, this story helps to shape children’s experience with a moral tone of seeing the value of all ‘pieces’ of the puzzle,” says Mariscal. “When we develop self-compassion, we develop compassion for others as a result.”
