Young children experience many confusing emotions in their early years and I Feel Sad looks at sadness, in a light-hearted but ultimately reassuring way. This picture book examines how and why people feel sad, illustrates scenarios of people feeling sad and upset, and the best way to deal with it with age-appropriate content.
Ideal for home or the classroom, this book contains notes for parents and teachers with suggestions of ways to help children deal with being sad.
Filled with colourful illustrations by the every-popular, award-winning illustrator Mike Gordon.
