Ah, Valentine's Day. Famously putting pressure and a price tag on our humanity's purest gift - Love.
But the 14th doesn't need to be February's spotlight! The month offers us so many opportunities to inspire TRUE love and acceptance like: Lunar New Year, Family Day, Pink Shirt Day, (the wrap-up of) Whistler Pride, Black History Month and more.
We've rounded up some lovely literary launchpads to help foster a lifetime of self-love, community building and allyship (beyond the candy hearts).
Check out this list with some of our favourite titles for opening hearts and minds to better love ourselves and others:
