The Way I Feel, Así me siento yo,
“Silly is the way I feel
Vivid illustrations flood each page of Janan Cain’s books as her sometimes zany characters demonstrate how kids feel and how they act. You’ll see a child blazing with anger, one flushed with jealousy, and others jumping with energy, peering with curiosity, and comforting with compassion.
With 1.6 million copies in print, The Way I Feel is Parenting Press’s most popular book ever! It’s available in two large-format, gift-quality hardbacks, one in English and one in Spanish. The Way I Feel is also available in an abridged edition, a sturdy 18-page board book ideal for toddlers.
You’ll also want the companion book, the 32-page hardbound The Way I Act that Cain created with Steve Metzger, the author of more than 60 books for young children. Like The Way I Feel, this new book uses detailed illustrations, evocative type faces and intense color to complement the simple verses that explain character traits like curiosity, compassion, and bravery. The bias-free language introduces the vocabulary of values with nonjudgmental language. The Way I Act concludes with a page of suggestions for parents who want to talk with children about the difference between feelings and actions, and the choices that kids can make in their behavior.
Ideal for use in homes, classrooms, and libraries, these books are also excellent additions to play therapy rooms in shelters, therapeutic preschools, pediatric and mental health clinics, and in foreign language, English as a Second language programs and special education programs. All three have been approved for classroom use by the California Department of Education. The Way I Feel is rated by Accelerated Reader and included in several curriculum packages.
We were delighted by parenting instructor Ann Corwin’s enthusiastic praise for our first-ever picture book. This video includes both Corwin’s compliments and her how-to’s for using the book with children. For more information, see Cain’s own web site.
