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.
