Product Details

Praise

“Lots of white space on each page keeps the mood soothing and thoughtful as the girl tries to figure out what to do. . . There’s lots of useful advice for sad days: going for a walk through the trees, or just sitting quietly together. Best of all, there’s the calm reminder that tomorrow, ‘when you wake up it might be gone.'” — New York Times

“Children will feel better, too, knowing they have a helpful, honest, and empathetic picture book ready for the next time Sadness shows up for a visit.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review


“Sadness, Eland expresses, need not always feel like an intrusive guest—rather, it’s one whose arrival warrants attention, reflection, and care.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“By focusing on the feeling, rather than the circumstance, the book speaks to readers of all ages and backgrounds.”
-School Library Journal
 
“…invites readers to look at sadness with new perspective and offers potential coping strategies. while offering an affirming way to understand, discuss, and view sadness that children—and their adults—may find helpful.”
-Booklist
