Things are so much different now than when I was a kid. We didn’t talk about our feelings, or things like diversity, trauma, hardship. Along comes Eve Eland who brings sadness to the front lines. What is sadness? Do you see it? Feel it? Does it want to sit quietly? Or does it wish to draw something fantastic? This new picture book is beautifully illustrated with crayons (or something else that looks like crayon) is a book that kids may relate to without actually being called sad. A great read aloud or a book to sit quietly with a little and talk about what is happening.
