Product description

Review

"Outstanding, don't miss it." ― Irish Independent

"Helping children understand their own and other people’s feelings is a vital building block for building a more empathetic society. This lovely book sensitively explores the emotion of sadness, and the importance of accepting it. For anyone living or working with children, It’s a great springboard for sharing how to handle feelings." -- Miranda McKearney OBE ― EmpathyLab

"Both gentle and profound, Eland's assured debut takes a poignant look at a difficult emotion." -- Fiona Noble ― The Bookseller

"Packs an emotional punch, showing our littlest readers ways to acknowledge and manage sadness." ― Sunday Independent, Best Books of 2019

"This poignant picture book helps children to recognise and understand difficult emotions... A contemplative and ultimately uplifting tale, which will be a welcome addition to any home or school bookshelf." ― BookTrust
