In this emotions book for kids, the reader is taken on a journey to understand how to deal with big emotions.

Are you an angry person? No, you feel angry.

Are you a bad person? No, you feel shame.

You are loved and emotions will pass. Breathe them all through.

Kids and adults will be transported into a beautifully colorful world that mirrors our inner worlds.

With soothing poetry and watercolor illustrations, I Just Am teaches readers:

  • How to notice their feelings.
  • Mantras to use when in those feelings.
  • How to talk to little ones about big emotions.
  • There is no such thing as a "bad emotion"!

Perfect for fans of In My Heart, A book of feelings and Out Of A Jar, this book is an ideal addition to homes, libraries, and classrooms alike.

A book giving readers of all ages, especially children, permission to explore and express their feelings, whatever they may be.

A bird needs to fly. A moon needs to glow.
I need to feel all my feelings to grow.


Siri Garnaas is a poet and yoga practitioner who has been studying mindfulness for over a decade. She believes in the power of mantras and movement to help process emotions—and as the mother of three young children, she has firsthand experience with their effectiveness on the big emotions our little ones can feel. Siri lives in Minneapolis, MN, with her husband and three kids.
