A girl, a potato, and a very sad flamingo star in this charming sequel to I’m Bored by New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black and celebrated illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Everyone feels sad sometimes—even flamingos.
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!
