And that's how the people at Parenting
Press feel too, now that their award-winning children's picture
book, "The Way I Feel," is available in an 18-page toddler board
book edition (ISBN 1-884734-72-3, $7.95).
First issued in 2000 in
a 32-page cloth-bound edition, Janan Cain's "The Way I Feel" uses
zany characters, evocative colors, hand-lettered type and rhyming
text to describe "silly," "scared," "sad" and other emotions. The
nonjudgmental language signals that all feelings are acceptable:
"Silly or angry, happy or sad -- They're all a part of me!"
Beloved by children, parents and professionals alike, "The Way I
Feel" is being used in homes, child care centers and preschools,
libraries, and pediatric clinics.

Reviewers' praise includes these comments: "Children who struggle
to find the words that express their feelings ... may well feel 'The
Way I Feel' was written just for them"; and "To all the children out
there, Janan Cain knows how you feel!"
