What Kind of Book is I'm Sad

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.25 / 7.0

This book is all about feeling sad, and how to deal with that emotion. It feels very meta, but would be a great resource for helping a child understand sadness a little better if that’s something they struggle with on a regular basis and have difficulty coping with. Rather than this being a book that illustrates how to deal with sadness through a story or scenario, it’s very blunt… self-help for kids!
