A child-friendly format for the classic book on how emotions and behaviors interact
With wacky characters, varied type faces, and vivid colors, this picture book introduces the vocabulary of values with nonjudgmental language.
A wide variety of character traits presents kids with scenarios they can identify with, including peering at bugs with a magnifying glass, making the bed, and finishing a puzzle. Additional examples define words such as “curious,” “responsible,” “persistent,” and “capable.” The scenarios let children imagine how they might act in a number of common situations.
The Way I Act provides parents with guidance on how to talk to their children about the difference between feelings and actions and the choices that kids can make in their behavior.
