What's The Way I Act About

Publisher Summary

The Way I Act explores thirteen ways of behaving. The friendly verses and bold illustrations convey many positive ideas of how to act in a variety of situations. In the companion book, The Way I Feel, children learned that feelings come and go and simply are. A little older now, they are ready to think about the ability they have to control how things turn out. Like The Way I Feel, this book is ideal for children with autism.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Goodfather
Favorite pastime? Reading with my kids. Just finished Nana Cracks the Case!
4.0 / 7.0

The Way I Act describes or defines in simplified terms a number of characteristics important for children to develop, qualities like being persistent, cooperative, and responsible. In covering 13 different admirable behaviors, though, the title fails to present a memorable or engaging story, thereby missing out on the incredible power children’s books have to really help kids (or adults) understand and feel inspired. Still, if you need a title to quickly introduce good behaviors, this could be a good fit.
