Send a link to a friend

[NOV. 6, 2004]  "I'm bouncing like a rubber ball. I'm more excited than I can say!"

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!"
