Like The Way I Feel, this new picture book uses detailed illustrations of sometimes zany characters, type faces and vivid 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.
