The Way I Feel is a rhyming book that provides children with the names of their feelings, from disappointed to thankful. The companion book, The Way I Act, similarly provides language about common actions including persistent and respectful. Having the words to describe their feelings and actions provides children with the power to better understand and discuss their inner and outer selves. These books are also tools for parents and caregivers to begin conversations about emotions.
