Praise

“On his first day of school, a young boy learns it’s OK to show his feelings no matter his age…The overall lesson about men showing tears is made all the more effective with its representation of a range of feelings beyond sadness. A compassionate story that encourages openness and honesty about emotions.”

-Kirkus

 
Levi is crying because it’s his first day at a new school. “Big boys don’t cry,” Papa tells him, but Levi’s
journey as he walks proves otherwise. First he sees a fisherman weeping, then a harpist, grandparents, new parents, rich men, poor men, army men, brainy men, and even baker men. “Big boys were crying everywhere!”
Digitally created full-bleed pages highlight the bright pastels of the seashore.Children will have fun seeking out the spurting blue drops on each unique face, as they understand that it’s
OK to cry.—Booklist
