The I’M…. picture books (I’m Bored, I’m Sad, I’m Worried and I’m Sorry) are written by Michael Ian Black and illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi, published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers. The series features a girl, a flamingo and a potato who explore their emotions.
HOW SOME EDUCATORS AND LIBRARIANS ARE USING THESE BOOKS WITH YOUNG READERS:
Tina Cho uses I’M SORRY with young readers and asks questions like “Have you ever felt hurt like Flamingo? Tell us about it” as well as role-playing. Find out more in her Teachers | Books | Readers blog post.
Andrea Mack uses I’M WORRIED with her kindergarten students to talk about emotions. Read her blog post suggesting activities (Drawn & Write, STEM, STEAM) and discussion topics.
