Understanding & Coping with Emotions
Most Popular Topics for Parenting Press Books

The Way I Feel, the 32-page hardcover picture book about emotions by Janan Cain, is once again back in stock, and once again Parenting Press’s best-selling title for March.

Chicago-area illustrator Cain’s The Way I Act, which focuses on behavior, continues to be Parenting Press’s #2 title in sales.

Other top 10 titles for the month’s sales to date include the 18-page board book edition of The Way I Feel, ideal for toddlers, and the Spanish edition of The Way I Feel Así me siento yo.

For more information about any of Cain’s books, see Teacher guides, information on CCSS alignment and downloadable resources for the Cain books are available at

Two abuse prevention guides for young children by Lory Freeman, It’s MY Body: A Book to Teach Young Children How to Resist Uncomfortable Touch, and Loving Touches — A Book for Children About Positive, Caring Kinds of Touching, have been popular for more than 25 years.

Two other now-classic publications among Parenting Press bestsellers are Self-Calming Cards created by Elizabeth Crary and Mits Katayama, which describe and illustrate strategies for handling anxiety, anger, excitement and other strong emotions; and I’m Mad, a branching-format book that encourages children to determine what turns the plot takes at several points, as the main character works through his anger at a younger brother. Two similar books also selling well this spring are I’m Frustrated and My Name is Not Dummy.
