New StoryWalk®

The Way I Feel, by Janan Cain

The StoryWalk® book, The Way I Feel by Janan Cain, is now on display in Lions Park.  We are grateful to Kingman County Extension for loaning us another book, which is an exploration of feelings. Goodreads had the following to say about this book:  Feelings are neither good nor bad, they simply are. Kids need words to name their feelings, just as they need words to name all things in their world. The Way I Feel uses strong, colorful, and expressive images which go along with simple verses to help children connect the word and the emotion. Your child will learn useful words, and you will have many chances to open conversations about what’s going on in her/his life.
