Tapping into her passion as an illustrator, she decided to create her own book and with that, her first picture book, 'The Way I Feel', was born. With over 2,000,000 copies in print, The Way I Feel is among the best-selling children's... Read More

Hardcover Picture Book

Published Jan 2011

With wacky characters, varied type faces, and vivid colors, this picture book introduces the vocabulary of values with nonjudgmental language. The book depicts a wide variety of character traits—including some not usually attributed to young children—and presents kids with scenarios with which they can identify, including peering at bugs with a magnifying glass, making the bed, and finishing a puzzle. The text cites additional examples that define words such as “curious,” “responsible,” “persistent,” and “capable.” The scenarios on each two-page spread let children imagine how they might act in a number of common situations. The Way I Act concludes with a page of suggestions for parents who wish to talk to their children about the difference between feelings and actions and the choices that kids can make in their behavior.
