Craryâ€™s series helps children and adults accept and acknowledge their emotions. It also helps them distinguish between feelings and actions. Even more important, the stories give kids several ways to cope with feelings. They also allow parents and teachers to discuss other situations in a nonjudgmental way. I'm Proud demonstrates the importance of positive emotions like pride. It also reminds us how much children want their "small" accomplishments recognized, as Mandy does when she learns to tie her shoes.
