About the Author


Juana Medina was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. She is the author and illustrator of the Pura Belpré Award-winning chapter book Juana & Lucas. Juana's other author-illustrated books include I WILL!I AM!Juana & Lucas: Big Problemas1 Big SaladABC Pasta, and Sweet Shapes. She has earned recognition from the Colombian Presidency, the National Cartoonists Society, the National Headliner Awards, the International Latino Book Awards, and the Ridgway Awards, among others — quite impressive for someone who was a less-than-stellar student and often got in trouble for drawing cartoons of her teachers. Despite all the trouble caused, Juana studied and taught at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and the Corcoran College of Art + Design (where students had plenty of chances to draw cartoons of her). She lives in the DC area, with her wife, twin sons, and their dear dog, Rosita.

Praise For…


"Everyone struggles with managing the emotions that roil them, but for young children, emotions can be even harder without a way to articulate them. Medina’s new book–and the third in her “I Will” series—seeks to help children point to and name 14 different emotions. The illustrations depict a diverse group of children and a variety of skin tones; the pairings will elicit conversations. Perfect for parents, teachers, psychologists, and counselors to share with young children to help them validate, understand, and even regulate their emotions."
School Library Journal (starred review)

Belpré Award–winning Medina ... sets up this picture book with the question, “Do you feel….” Each subsequent spread lists an emotion accompanied by two illustrations. One shows the feeling in action, for example, a light-skinned child splashing in a puddle to depict “happy.” The other is a simple line drawing of a face (for “happy,” a teal face with smiling eyes and a large grin). The book concludes, “All feelings are valid. It is what we do with them that matters.” Medina’s naming ... of human emotions are empowering for little readers and a starting place for conversations with caregivers.  — Kirkus Reviews
