Dancing! Prancing! Running! Jumping! Spinning like a top.When I'm active, I feel GREAT! And never want to Stop.So exclaims a child alive with joy in her physical self. Some children, like this one, rush headlong into their world; others, equally joyous but perhaps a little more cautious, hand back and watch for a bit. All of them, regardless of their temperament, have to choose how they will respond to the events and people in their lives.Young school children are eager to figure out how their world works and what its "rules" are. The Way I Act is an enjoyable exploration of what it may be like to behave in certain ways. The door is opened for discussion about the consequences of behavior. In the companion book, the Way I Feel, children learned that feelings come and go and simple are. A little older now, they are ready to think about the ability thay have to control how things turn out.The Way I Act explores thirteen ways of behaving. The friendly verses and bold illustrations convey to the reader many positive ideas of how to act in a variety of situations.

About the Author
Janan Cain is the creator of the popular ‘Way I’ children’s picture book series, with over two million copies in print. Janan grew up in Darien, Illinois, with a deep passion for drawing and painting. Her 30-year career as an illustrator and author spans a range of accomplishments, from illustrations for corporate campaigns and consumer packaging, to branding and communication design for Fortune 500 companies. In 1993, Janan left the corporate world to raise her two daughters. She wanted to teach them words for their feelings but couldn’t find picture books for young children dealing with the complexities of emotions in a straightforward way that children could grasp. 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 picture books of all time winning numerous awards and accolades. Janan also wrote and illustrated Lost and Alone and co-created The Way I Act with Steve Metzger.
